Vision for the future
The Lagos Tripple “L” Centre
The Lagos Living and Learning Centre (Triple L Centre) will provide such an environment, which is a “trade mark” of the CDC’s warm, friendly and stimulating surrounding for learning and inclusion. The Triple L Centre is currently under construction. The ground breaking was performed by her Excellency, the Former First Lady of Lagos State, Chief Oluremi Tinubu on our 8.3 acres of land at Idi-Orogbo village along the Ibeju Lekki expressway. The land has been acquired through the assistance of STATOIL who are keen to see the organisation grow and build on, the already laid solid foundation.
The Lagos Living and Learning Centre (Triple L Centre) will be a semi-independent living facility for our students, comprising of workshops, farming and processing areas, a support employment unit, well-equipped sports centre and on-site housing for essential staff. As usual the service will be coordinated with a well-trained team.
The adolescent unit has already shown our potentials, which was seen in the success of 4 young people who participated in the Special Olympics 2003, in Dublin, Ireland, representing Nigeria’s Emerging Special Olympic Programme. 4 medals were won, 1 gold, 1 silver and 2 bronzes, this shows the abilities and skills of young people with developmental disabilities when given the right opportunities.
