Kaddy Jadama is from the smiling coast of Africa; the GAMBIA. She is 26 years old, a disabled rights activist, gender activist and presently studying Gender and Development at the Management Development Institute (M.I.D). She is the Vice President of Focus on Brikama, which prepares young talents through counselling and education and hosts events that will showcase Gambian talents to the international world.
She is also the CEO of Kaddy’s Foundation for the Differently Abled. She volunteers for many organisations in the Gambia and has been on many youth platforms. Her passion to advocate for the disabled stems from her realization that the their rights were always trampled on. She fights for their right to quality education, shelter, and the need to harness their talents and for them to have the same privileges and equal rights and opportunities in the society. Even without a university degree, Kaddy believes she can still make an impact and surely makes a positive impact in the lives of many. She truly is a good role model worthy of emulation.
