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:

DEVELOPMENT ORGANISATIONS

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.

DISABILITY ORGANISATIONS

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

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.

Our Story

In 2013, we begun a wheelchair rugby workshop that used adaptive sports as a platform to provide access to Sexual and Reproductive Health services to women with disabilities in Nairobi.
Over 200 women with disabilities received reproductive health services through partners like Family Health Options. Since 2015, we have been working to strengthen movement-building for young women with disabilities in Kenya in a bid to strengthen advocacy and build our collective voice.
We have been working with community-based groups of women with disabilities in various counties training around leadership and advocacy skills to enable constituents engage with policymakers and influence change.
