The IREDE Foundation (TIF), a not-for-profit organisation that inspires actions so that child amputees and their families can live independent and limitless lives, is hosting the biggest disability advocacy walk: Out On A Limb. Slated for the 9th of April, 2022, this advocacy walk across multiple locations will create top of mind awareness about limb loss and promote inclusion of persons with disability. 

Out On a Limb is an annual advocacy walk that aims to educate society on the urgent demand for better management of limb loss, limb differences, fracture, and the social integration of persons with disability. To ensure the impact of the walk is delivered, The IREDE Foundation holds the walk simultaneously across locations in Nigeria and globally. In the last 8 years of the annual walk, TIF has led conversations across 40 locations with a direct reach of 15,000 people and an indirect reach of ten million people, globally. The advocacy walk gives TIF the opportunity to raise awareness about limb loss, increase top of mind awareness about the foundation and the support available for its target stakeholders, and fundraise to empower child amputees.

Themed ‘Iredians’, the 2022 Out On A Limb Walk is staged to happen across 50 locations around the world simultaneously (see all locations here). This walk will also promote the first-ever disability comic book in Africa, launched in 2021. The Iredians highlights the active leadership and participation of children with disabilities who are fighting against peer discrimination.
