Transforming the Lives of Persons with Albinism Through Education and Health Support.

“Albinism awareness is not just about dispelling myths; it’s about illuminating the path to inclusivity and empowerment. Through Engage Now Africa’s efforts, we’re not just educating, but inspiring a brighter, more accepting future for persons with albinism in Ghana.”

— Andrews Kwame Daklo ENA Albinism Project Coordinator

Championing Albinism Advocacy

Engage Now Africa has been actively involved in sensitization and advocacy efforts aimed at combating stigma, discrimination, and social prejudice faced by persons with albinism, both globally and in Ghana. By raising awareness in schools, communities, and churches, they seek to promote understanding and protect the rights of individuals with albinism. Throughout 2023, the organization conducted sensitization sessions, reaching over 6,500 students and teachers across various educational institutions.

Additionally, community-based initiatives engaged local leaders and opinion influencers, recognizing their pivotal role in dispelling myths and misconceptions surrounding albinism. Regional sensitization efforts extended to communities in the Greater Accra, Northern, Volta, and Eastern Regions, while social media platforms facilitated broader outreach. In total, over 90,000 individuals were reached, including both persons with albinism and their allies, contributing to a more inclusive and informed society. Our goal is to empower individuals, families and communities to become advocates for albinism, fostering positive change at both the grassroots and regional levels.

Asset based community development programs are designed to invite individual participation at every level--their involvement is critical.

Initiatives significantly reduce disease, suffering, and the disenfranchisement of the poor and lead to greater self-reliance.

Our trainings focus on vulnerable families and communities. Amputees and people with disabilities and with health conditions.

Voices of Wisdom

Some of the wisest elders in our communities are the voices of children who encourage, teach, and inspire us to stay safe and healthy during times of uncertainty. We invite you to listen as a few children in Ghana teach us how to protect ourselves during COVID-19.

Empowering Brighter Futures: ENA’s Eye Care Initiative for Students with Albinism 


ENA’s Albinism team sought to address visual impairments faced by Marwan and Halidu Musah, two students with albinism, in Accra, Ghana. Our team facilitated comprehensive eye screenings to ensure these two boys received specially prescribed lenses tailored to their individual needs. This impactful intervention underscores the importance of proactive and targeted efforts in promoting accessible eye care for individuals facing visual challenges. Through collaborative initiatives we will continues to make a meaningful impact on the lives of students with albinism, empowering them to thrive academically and beyond.

Enhancing Skin Wellness: Our Commitment to Persons with Albinism


People with albinism develop skin cancer at extremely high rates because of the climate here. They are often diagnosed at later stages because they are out in the sun and do not have access to use sunscreen. The form of skin cancer that someone may get at the age of 60, most with albinism will receive at the age of 20,” –Dr. Jeannette Aryee-Boi, Volunteer Dermatologist and Albinism Advocate

Engage Now Africa organized a skin cancer awareness forum on November 11th, 2022, specifically targeting persons with albinism. The event aimed to educate attendees about skin health and preventive measures, emphasizing the heightened risk of skin cancer within this community. Expert dermatologists provided valuable insights on sun protection and conducted skin screenings during the forum.

In addition to raising awareness, Engage Now Africa demonstrated its commitment to supporting persons with albinism by providing them with specialized sunscreen lotions. This initiative reflects the organization’s holistic approach to promoting health and well-being within vulnerable populations.

Moreover, the event served as a platform for advocacy, with attendees calling for government support to integrate sunscreen lotions into national health insurance schemes. Such measures are crucial for ensuring sustained access to preventive healthcare resources, ultimately enhancing the longevity and quality of life for individuals with albinism.
