Explain your idea in details:
Disclub is an app that aims to address the loneliness pandemic among people with disabilities. People with Disabilities feel isolated, lonely, unhappy and withdrawn from society. This is because the don't have people like them within their community to relate with and people tend to misunderstand them. With Disclub I will address this issue. Disclub uses age, name location and diagnosis to connect them and the algorithm will match them based on their diagnosis. In order to access the app you have to signup and upload a photo to get matched. You Wil have the opportunity to speak with a specialist in the area of your disability. This specialist will provide basic information on how to take care of your disability and if you want a premium content and one on one consulting you have to pay by subscription per month. Apart from chat features you will have group video call, party feature and users would be able to play games in groups . Certain features will also be premium etc. Users can report others if the feel threatened or bullied. Words that are offensive to the disability community veill be banned..

Plans for implementation and sustainability
In order to move to the start up stage of this idea I need to raise money through crowdfunding. As a business we will generate revenue through subscription model. Users will have to pay in order to access certain features which will be either on a monthly, or yearly basis. We will also generate revenue through ads but will do it on a way that won't allow us to loose customer.
My name is David Nnaji and I am 19 years old. I grew up in a small village in Eastern Nigeria. I am the second son of my parents. I was born with albinism a disorder that affects the hsur skin and eye as a result of lack of melanin. Growing up in Africa as a person with albinism has been very challenging. We aren't accepted by the society because of our skin color, we are been discriminated against,bullied abd made to suffer because of being born different. The sad reality is that nobody supports us not even the govt. As a minority I didn't have the opportunity of meeting someone like me who can understand my challenges. I became socially withdrawn and developed social anxiety. Trying to overcome my social anxiety is what led to the idea of Disclub. And I am looking foword to make it a reality
