About Us

A Social Enterprise

This-Ability is a social enterprise focused on advancing Disability Rights and Inclusion in Kenya. Our team combines business strategy and social entrepreneurship with a passion for disability rights. We work to provide technical support and assistance to strengthen disability rights and inclusion in Kenya. We also work on inclusive supply and demand approaches to design and implement strategies and innovative business approaches that are profitable, scalable and eradicate the challenges faced by women and girls with disabilities in mainstream development.

The Need

Globally, people with disabilities have a critical role to play in the growth and development of strong communities. However, women with disabilities are often excluded from effectively contributing to their communities. Invisibility, discrimination and inaccessibility persist, in spite of laws and policies that should protect the civil rights of women with disabilities - due to lack of effective implementation, monitoring and enforcement.

This-Ability is a comprehensive resource hub that provides information, tools and best practices to implement and enforce laws and policies to protect the rights of women and girls with disabilities.
Who We Work With: 
This-Ability works with a variety of players to advance the rights of women and girls with disabilities in Kenya. These include:
  • Disability Organizations that realize adopting market based organizational management tools is necessary to reach the scale of impact and access to opportunities for women and girls with disabilities.
  • Private sector companies that realize women and girls with disabilities make up the majority of the Kenyan population that lives under the poverty line, and that this is a large untapped growth opportunity aligned with their corporate mission, capabilities and aspirations of their talented pool.
  • Development players (Governments, Foundations, NGOs, Development agencies and Social investors) who realize that persons with disabilities face many obstacles opportunities, and getting business and society to cooperate is a huge un-leveraged opportunity.
We often bring our clients together in consortium, as we believe that cross-sector collaboration is a critical requirement for any large-scale social impact.



What We Do: 
  • Research innovative market-based solutions to the challenges faced by women and girls with disabilities and assess their impact, business model and scalability in the local Kenyan context. 
  • Design creative strategies that enable organizations to adopt disability inclusive models in their core business structures.
  • Business advisory services for startups for women with disabilities, including Entrepreneurship and Business skills training.
  • Disability Inclusion awareness and training for private sector development e.g. Persons with disabilities in the Workplace, Job Skills development for women with disabilities, Disability Accessibility and Mainstreaming.


Our Team:
With an average of ten years professional and management experience, our team has solid industry experience behind them. This-Ability comprises of experts from a wide variety of fields including Gender, Development, Policy Engagement, Research, Law, Business, and Education. This mix is strategic and essential for success in advancing disability rights and inclusion.
