With World Friends to protect the weakest children in the slums of Nairobi

World Friends "NO EXCLUDED" campaign supports the Social Inclusion Project for Children with Disabilities in the Nairobi slums: an opportunity for them and their families to emancipate themselves and fight the stigma of disability.

None Excluded

Where

In Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, where World Friends concentrates its activities. In the slums and in particular in the Kasarani area, where there are estimated to be more than 5000 minors under the age of 14 with some degree of disability. In these areas, schools with adequate structures and programs are very rare, and health services specialized in the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of disability almost non-existent.

How it

Consolidating and expanding the physiotherapy / occupational therapy program activated by World Friends in the slums Facilitating access to the world of work for parents with disabled children
Enhancing access to education for children with disabilities
Raising awareness of disability in the slum communities
