Who We Are?

Parents are often baffled by the problems presented by a child with learning disabilities. Often this “invisible disability” does not become obvious until a child reaches school age. Even then, difficulties may be subtle and hard to recognise.

Coat of Many Colours Africa is a non-profit support and information system for parents and schools of children with learning challenges. Our goal is to help families and schools take charge of their children/wards’ special conditions and help them achieve in life.

It is a dream project of Anthonia Olubunmi Alabi, an educational consultant and Chief Consultant at Promoworld Educational Consult and her husband, Steve Olayinka Alabi, a Creative Consultant and Web Developer, whose company, Mc Rufus Interactive is the Technology partner in Coat of Many Colours.

The years of Promoworld Educational Consult’s working and providing support for schools in the areas of consultation and Teacher Support for effective development of Individual Education Plans (IEP) for children with Learning Difficulties (LD) has revealed certain issues, especially that of poor involvement of parents due to lack of understanding of the child’s condition, and potentials to be unveiled with proper understanding and giving the right support.

Coat of Many Colours Africa have a partner network of specialist health practitioners, educators and special schools who share the same vision with us.
While currently operating in Ghana and Nigeria, our vision is to be able to give support to as many children and families as possible across Africa.

What People Say...


  • We thank you for your support and hosting us at Coat Of Many Colours, Britich Council, Accra yesterday. It was a memorable event.

    Mr & Mrs Cephas Asuo
    Parents, Ghana

    Tony Owolabi
    Businessman, Nigeria
  • I gained a lot of insight attending this programme. A couple of people have dedicated their lives in unearthing the God-given gifts and potentials in underachieving children. It is my prayer that we'll find a way of reaching out to many more parents so they could receive hope and guidance in locating the talents God has so graciously deposited in these children. God bless the initiators, the resource persons and parents who educated us, encouraged us and opened our hearts to understanding the needs of these children. Coat of many colours indeed. Each colour obviously matters. God richly bless you all

    Kafui Asuo
    Parent, Ghana

    Nice one, I believe as time goes on, many families will come to appreciate the benefits of Coat of Many Colours. May God continue to strengthen you all in this great task.

    Mr. Peter Dery
