TAF Africa applauds the Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) for its commendable initiative in providing Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) the opportunity to register for the 2024/2025 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination at no cost. JAMB's commitment to ensuring equal educational opportunities for all, irrespective of physical abilities, is a noteworthy step towards fostering a more inclusive society. The decision to waive registration fees for persons with disabilities not only promotes accessibility but also acknowledges the importance of empowering individuals with diverse abilities to pursue higher education. As an organization dedicated to fostering inclusive education practices, TAF Africa recognizes the significance of JAMB's efforts in creating an environment where every student, regardless of physical challenges, can aspire to and achieve their educational goals. We believe that inclusive education is not only a matter of policy but a catalyst for building a more equitable and harmonious society. We have long championed the cause of inclusive education, striving to eliminate barriers that hinder the full participation of PWDs in educational institutions. Through our various interventions and advocacy programs, we have worked towards creating awareness, providing support, and influencing policies that promote inclusive learning environments. We commend JAMB for aligning with the principles of inclusive education and taking concrete steps to make higher education accessible to everyone. This initiative not only serves as a testament to the commitment of JAMB but also sets a positive example for other educational institutions to follow suit. TAF Africa remains committed to collaborating with stakeholders, including government bodies, educational institutions, and the community at large, to continue our mission of fostering inclusivity in education. We encourage other organizations and institutions to join hands in creating a society where diversity is celebrated, and everyone can reach their full potential.   SIGNED: Amb.
