Our Agenda

What We Do

What We Do!

Sickle Strong

The above project focuses on all health matters which varies from staying healthy, to crises and its challenges, stem cell, bone marrow transplant, other surgeries and the honest aftermaths, herbal remedies (if any) amongst others. GSI intends to liaise with medical doctors abroad, especially haematologist and find a way to bring them into Nigeria for a specific time so that they can administer the required health care to as many warriors as possible.

Sickle Swag

This particular project deals more with the challenges of stigmatisation and empowering the warrior. The aim is to bring as many warriors as possible to the limelight by seeking their passions and hunting their talents through various competitions. These competitions could be singing, fashion, crafts, sciences, poetry and any other form of creativity. As mentioned above, we intend to set up a creative competition for SCD patients only. Every participant will be rewarded, especially the winner who will be linked to strong personalities in his/her chosen career.

Single & Married Warrior

The challenges of life as a single or married warrior has always been a big issue in Nigeria. The moment people discover the sickle trait in an individual, a certain stigma shows up and goes as far as dating, courtship and sometimes marriage. This segment deals more with counselling and preparing warriors in issues that has to do with sentiments and emotions.

Partnership That Works

Since the GSI operates globally, another vision of ours is to partner with other SCD foundations based in Nigeria. We do this in order to support these foundations financially and also to use them as channels through which we can reach out to as many warriors as possible.

Sickle Candle

A programme that will be done annually in remembrance of every warrior that passed on. Those of them who made strong marks in the sands of time, will be featured in the ‘Gail annual bulletin.
