3rd AFRICAN STUTTERING CONGRESS

It is estimated that 1% of the world's population is affected by stuttering. That is approximately 60 million! At least 8 million are from Africa. In Africa, most of the information about stuttering is related to folk ideas and many people use dangerous methods to try to treat stuttering. In most African nations there is no speech therapy service available.

IT'S TIME TO MAKE A CHANGE

The 3rd African Stuttering Congress will be held from October 26 to October 30, 2014 in Osogbo, the capital of Osun State Nigeria.

The conference is organized by the stuttering association of Nigeria (the local stuttering association - www.isastutter.org/nigeria) with the support of the International Stuttering Association (ISA) (http://www.isastutter.org).

To be successful, funding is essential, because in Africa most people who stutter simply cannot afford the transportation costs to Nigeria or the expenses of housing (etc.) whilst at the conference. Besides helping with scholarship for delegates from African nations, there are several other potential events we will need to raise funds for including a welcome reception, dinner and/or speaker costs.

The African conference will be an important way for people from many African nations to "join hands." Important networking opportunities and collaborations play an important role in the work being done throughout Africa for people who stutter.

Stuttering Association of Nigeria will need funds for all these “emphasis” above through the help of donations, the conference will cater for the needs of delegates coming from around the world and funds will be needed to help achieve all the organization aim and objectives.

Together We can make a DIFFERENCE
