People with disabilities need to build their self-esteem and love themselves with their disability because no one will do it for them. Disability doesn’t constitute a problem that can stop our development and achievement, but our environment is the big problem.

Instead of being ashamed of one state of disability, everyone should capitalize on this condition to make it an asset. The history of the world has shown that the greatest president of the United States (Franklin Roosevelt was a person with a motor disability. In the Ivory Coast there are examples of musicians who are real stars who are very well respected today ", meant Vincent Kadélé.

"Integrity, a sense of service, excellency ... must be virtues that furnish the lives of all people with disabilities. People with disabilities should be qualified in many fields in order to establish themselves through the quality of their work and their skills, ”said Vincent Bohouo Kadélé.
