Vision

Every person affords an opportunity to pursue their full potential without barriers.

Our Mission

Economically empowering communities through inclusive collaborations.

Who we are

An initiative for economic empowerment

InBusiness Initiative works towards economic empowerment of people with disabilities with a hope to mainstream inclusion.

We work towards mainstreaming issues related to people with disabilities. We work towards a world where people with disabilities would be rid of social barriers that restrict them from fully performing their daily activities. Our way to bring about this change is by promoting self reliance among people with disabilities, be it through education, employment or entrepreneurship. We intend to mobilise the whole community to address this issue, through partnerships that are mutually beneficial, in monetary terms and otherwise. We collaborate with different partners to work on our focus areas to achieve our vision of a barrier free world where every person has an opportunity to realise their potential.

Our History

Major Milestones

Inclusive Business as a concept was introduced in 2016 by Light for the World. Since then it has evolved to a program and finally to an initiative. Each year represents a step towards achieving our vision.

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.
