An inclusive platform. Get engaged.

Meaningful engagements with people with disabilities.

InBusiness Initiative brings together advocates of disability inclusion with private sector and the Government to co-create models of sustainably engaging people with disabilities in employment, in business, or in education. This initiative creates a space to explore what works in terms of economic empowerment of people with disabilities and give tools, learnings, practical cases to institutions that are working towards being inclusive.

Our Theory of Change

The InBusiness Initiative in Summary.

Crisis

Very few people with disabilities manage to get post high school diploma and out of that population very few manage to secure employment and even fewer manage to successfully run their own enterprises. The Government of Kenya has supported enactment of robust laws but inclusion of the population with disabilities still remains low.

Aim

We aim to improve the economic and social wellbeing of people with disabilities through inclusive business and social engagements and to make inclusion the norm.

Focus areas

Business and Technical Support Services

Why

Supporting each Other is Building Opportunities

InBusiness Initiative brings together advocates of disability inclusion such as the private sector and Government to co-create models of sustainably engaging people with disabilities in employment, in business, or education. This initiative creates a space to explore what works in terms of economic empowerment of people with disabilities and give tools, learnings, practical cases to institutions that are working towards being inclusive.

While governments impose measures to limit the spread of COVID-19, most of us are left to experience the effects of these uncertain times. It could be losing a livelihood, earning less, your business failing, or even contracting the virus. Its scale is also devastating. Such uncertainty is present in all corners of the world. We sure can not take it all away – we wish we could. We can, however, be certain that, by coming together, we are exponentially raising our odds of overcoming the negative economic effects the Pandemic is inflicting. The Kenyan economy is not isolated; it is vulnerable too.

Our way of making sure that we are supporting each other is building opportunities where capital can be re-allocated, shared, and donated. We want you to know that our thoughts are with you. This is one of the ways we think we can help. Help us take care of our vulnerable businesses too, and by proxy, our jobs.

We would love to hear from you. Reach out to us. We are happy to hear from you.
