Following the launch of “Niko Fiti” Ability Beyond Disability, Corporate Social Responsibility Campaign on November 3rd 2011, The Standard Group (SG), the campaign media partners gave huge pre and post-launch publicity which attracted a lot of public interest with inquiries on how members of the public could participate in the campaign and needy persons requesting for assistive devices.
