Early last month, 7th of june 2014 to be precise. The Most Beautiful Girl in Benue 2013 Queen Vanessa M. Beetseh and her team put together a fund raising
dinner for her pet project tagged "PROJECT DISABLED PERSONS (DAP)" in which the Honorable Minister of Interior Federal republic of Nigeria, Comrade Abba Moro was in attendance.
To support this noble course were other beauty queens from Benue and beyond who were present to support Queen Vanessa. They include, Face Of Idoma 2013, Miss Akata, Finest Girl Nigeria e.t.c.
The world Bank estimates that people with disabilities make up around 20% of the poorest, which translate to approximately 260 million people with disabilities living in absolute poverty. This is against backdrop of some militating factors such as lack of access to resources control; poor educational background or low literacy.
It is on this wake that Queen Vanessa thought it wise to set up an intervention program to help out in training disabled people in skills acquisition and giving them economic empowerment thereby eliminating poverty among disabled persons.
The program plans to pick disabled people of the street as many as they can depending on the level of finance and give them quality training in skills acquisition thereby giving them economic empowerment which will in the long run reduce poverty among disabled people and the society at large.
