WAFOD General Assembly held in Dakar, Senegal.

The West African Federation of the Disabled (WAFOD) organized a Sub Regional Assembly on 8th-9th December 2012, in Senegal, Dakar.

The new DPI Executive since their election in Durban, October 2011, made it a mission to reignite the disability movement in Africa, especially in West Africa. A previous trip to Cotonou, Benin by DPI Chairperson led to the formation of a Caretaker Committee whose mandate was to organize elections for the region and choose new office bearers to take the way forward.

The historic elections led to the selection of a young emerging leader Alzouma Maiga Idriss from Niger as WAFOD Chairperson. The other office bearers of WAFOD are: 1st Vice Chair – Ba Moctar (Mali) ; 2nd Vice Chair - Isatou Sanyang (Gambia) ; Secretary – Ayassou Komivi (Togo) and Treasurer – David Cardozo (Cape Verde).
