Tamunobelema Theodora Abaku, like many other people, took her physical agility and mobility for granted, prior to her Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) on September 30, 2016. The World Health Organization refers to SCI as a life changing injury here
Following a near-fatal accident, where the main gate went crashing down on her as she stepped out to start her day, Belema woke up to the realization that not only had her life been altered, she had fractured her spine at level T10/11, resulting in immediate paralysis from her lower abdomen down, eventually leading to severe spastic paraplegia.
Her overarching goal is to gain professional skills and expertise relevant to Digital Innovation and Technology to help her become as independent as possible and subsequently create universal solutions. She has been granted a conditional offer of admission to a MSc. program in Digital Business at the University of Salford, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom, to commence in June 2021.
The University of Salford offers several opportunities for paid work-placements through the Industry Collaboration Project and a chance to take part in entrepreneurship projects and competitions. This would potentially help her gain viable experience and an insight into the global tech space through Greater Manchester’s growing tech scene.
To achieve this goal, we request donation and sponsorship to cover tuition, feeding, housing, clothing, transportation and caregiver expenses throughout the duration of the program. The estimated cost is £81,122.30 and we hereby solicit the help, assistance, and partnership of individuals and corporate bodies to actualise this dream.
Donations are welcome to cover either corporate or personal social responsibility goals towards education or disability. We look forward to your support in cash and in kind, and appreciate making out time to go through this.
