Capacity building and networking for social change

This network equips a new generation of disability activists in East Africa with the tools, skills, and resources required to build powerful movements for change. This centres around a knowledge exchange between young East African disability activists, academics, international campaigning organisations, and existing disability networks. The programme helps disability activists influence governments, international development actors, and the private sector to design policies and services, at a local, national, and global level, which consider the needs of disabled people, as well as to challenge the stigma of disability within their own communities.
