The National Council for Persons with Disabilities is committed to mainstreaming disability issues in all aspects of socio-cultural, economic and political development. VSO Jitolee’s Disability Programme aims to improve participation and active involvement of persons with disabilities in the economic and socio-political life of the society. The National Ability Awards honour Kenyans who have overcome seemingly-insurmountable challenges and recognize groups and organisations that demonstrate leadership and commitment to enhancing accessibility, inclusion, universality and the elimination of any barriers that may impede the full participation of persons with disabilities in community life. Any disability (visually impaired, intellectually disabled, hearing impaired, physically disabled and children with disabilities) as well as a broad range of inclusionary activities for these disabilities may be considered for each award category. Certainly, each disability area is unique and faces specific challenges. Improvements in accessibility and inclusion, regardless of the specific disability, ultimately benefit all community members.
