Economically empowering communities through inclusive collaborations.
We believe that no one should be disenfranchised by circumstance or condition in achieving economic empowerment. Sustainable self reliance remains our ultimate objective.
Our Theory of Change
InBusiness (Inclusive Business) program focuses on economically empowering micro entrepreneurs with disabilities through capacity building in the business skills, technical skills, self advocacy skills and linking these skilled entrepreneurs to the bigger market. The aim of this linkage is to place micro entrepreneurs with disabilities in the value chain, be it as suppliers, distributors or in any other role. Through InBusiness program, public and private sector institutions play a significant role in meaningfully and gainfully engaging with persons with disabilities, by taking a step towards their inclusion journey. This program is funded by Inclusive Futures by UK Aid, Huisman Foundation and Argidius Foundation.
EmployAble program focuses on building employability skills of students with and without disabilities studying in five universities in Kenya, namely – Kenyatta University (KU), Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and technology (JKUAT), Zetech University, United Stated International University (USIU), and Multimedia University (MMU). Alongside capacity building on various topics, including self awareness, time management, CV writing, among others, students participate in exposure visits, career talks from industry experts, linkages to public and private sector institutions for job shadowing, internships, placements, etc. The participating universities take steps towards their inclusion journey to support and nurture the experience of students with disabilities in their universities.
EnableMe is Kenya’s disability focused interactive website, focused on creating a robust community of people with disabilities in Kenya. Currently the platform offers easily accessible information portals, online communities, with a lot more in store that help people with disabilities access gainful opportunities and engage meaningfully. EnableMe is currently in an early beta version and aims to be fully operational during the course of 2021.
Our approach to impact measurement
Monitoring and Evaluation is a significant part of what we do within the InBusiness Initiative. We use various tools to document everything we do so that we can collect evidence, learn lessons from each program and ultimately prepare a guide with good practices made available for everyone that envisions an inclusive society and works towards it.
Impact reports are tiny snippets of our impact measured and reported in different ways.
