her experience of a car accident in Nigeria in 1998 and flown to the
United Kingdom for treatment , was inspired to form the Gallant Women
Ability Foundation G- WAF a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO)  saddled with the responsibility of caring for the physically challenged women and children, and promoting independent living and self reliance.
Olaide Awosedo maintained that there was near absence of infrastructure facilities in place in Nigeria for the physically challenged hence her passion to launch the Gallant Women Ability Foundation later in the month and hope to work with NIDCOM and other stakeholders in attaining a state of equity and rights of women and children with disabilities.

Hon Dabiri-Erewa stressed the need for others to emulate Olaide and
promised to liaise with other government agencies particularly National Commission for persons with Disabilities and the Ministry of Women Affairs to promote the good course.

G-WAF was founded in 2018 mainly to promote, protect and ensure the full and equal enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms by all women with disability, less privileged children and the elderly.
