Padmore as a young teacher did not understand why some children in his class could not read, write, do mathematics and pay attention. Also Padmore wondered why children with disabilities were not attending school.
So in 2008, he decided to go to University of Education, Winneba-Ghana to study Special Education with specialization in intellectual and learning disabilities. While at the University of Education, Winneba, Padmore had the opportunity to become the Outreach Coordinator for the Special Education Students Association (SESA). Upon completion of his University in July, 2012, Padmore founded campaign for learning disabilities with the support of Dr. (Mrs) Nana Ama Browne Klutse.
Our vision is a society where children with learning disabilities and educational inequalities have equal access to education and reach their potential.
Our mission is to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote life-long learning opportunities for children and young people with learning disabilities and educational inequities in Ghana.
