“PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES ARE NOT BEGGARS. THEY ARE CHANGE MAKERS THE WORLD SHOULD FOCUS ON OUR ABILITIES AND NOT ON OUR DISABILITY”
WHO WE ARE
LILIAN DIBO FOUNDATION is a humanitarian and non-governmental organization which started way back in 2009 where the founder and CEO LILIAN DIBO EYONG, got pregnant and gave birth to a baby boy whom she named Nathanael-Noah Eyambe Akugeh. She struggled to raise her son in a state of trauma and depression. Two years later, she decided to go back to school to better her life so that she can be able to help other vulnerable gruops of persons who are going through the same situation.
LILIAN DIBO EYONG was blessed with hair dressing skills and she used the proceeds to help the orphans and hungry children in her community.
In 2016, due to the sociopolitical crisis that hit the Northwest and Southwest regions of Cameroon, she suspended her Accounting program that was already two tears gone at the University of Buea. Came and lived with her poor mother, hoping that things will get better but to no avail. The trauma and depression resurfaced as she stayed at home for more two years doing nothing….

WHAT WE PRODUCE
COVID-19 SENSITIZATION CAMPAIGN
LILIAN DIBO FOUNDATION has always proven that disability should not be incorporated with poverty. Disability is just a mindset and the disabled should not be focused on it. Also LILIAN DIBO FOUNDATION has shown to the general public that persons with disabilities should not always be on the receiving side rather they should be on the benefactors’ side. These words were backed by tgeir actions as the CEO and her team embarked on a COVID 19 sensitization campaign from one town to another. Face masks and detergents were produced at the training center of LILIAN DIBO FOUNDATION and were distributed for free to both disabled and nondisabled persons.
Due to this, she received an international recognition from MISS WHEELCHAIR WORLD COMMITTEE for being daring and going above the limit. Also LILIAN DIBO FOUNDATION received another recognition by MISS WHEELCHAIR MEXICO to participate in an online challenge.
LILIAN DIBO FOUNDATION is a proud sponsor of NAOYELA 2020.
