Education

We educate warriors in underserved communities in different ways.  We provide educational books that give information to parents, children and young adults about sickle cell. 

 

We educate face to face on self-managing at home and spotting the signs that need hospital care. We use Nigerian Pidgin English and sometimes get translators to translate in the local Nigerian dialect of the families we talk to.

Campaigns

At the Fit to Achieve Sickle Cell Foundation, our mission is to empower warriors battling sickle cell disease in Nigeria. Our campaigns are more than just fundraising endeavors; they're about raising awareness, offering support, and advocating for change. Through various initiatives like events, workshops, and financial aid, we address the comprehensive needs of those affected by the illness.

 

However, our impact relies on the kindness of donors and volunteers. Together, we strive to create a brighter future where every warrior receives the necessary resources and support to thrive. Join us as we work toward meaningful change, campaign by campaign.

Raising Awareness

Fit To Achieve is a charity that strives to help those in need and promote positive change in communities.

I AM

1 in 17 people in the UK will be affected with a rare disease. I am number 17 is a campaign to help the voices of those with a rare disease to be heard. 

Mentoring

As part of your vision to educate and support young warriors, we are delighted to announce that we will be providing mentoring to our warriors in Nigeria. We want to support children and young people to live healthy and happy lives.

 

If you live with sickle cell or your child lives with sickle cell and you think you could benefit from mentoring, please contact us.

ADVOCATING

We share literature and resources with communities and other charities we partner with to help educate sickle cell patients and their families.  We also work in partnerships with other grassroots charities to reach
out to other parts of the country. 

And we advocate for warriors through photography and telling their stories. We are keen to explore accessible ways to educate and advocate for our warriors.
