As part of our disability justice campaign, on March 30 from 9 am – 1 pm we will be having a disability awareness event in Mathare. We will be partnering with Baraka Medical Centre to provide information about what services are available for people with disabilities in Mathare: including physiotherapy, schooling and services and equipment from the Association for the Physically Disabled of Kenya (APDK).
We also hope to create broader awareness in the community about disability and how to best support those in our community who are differently abled.
The event will also feature performances by local artists and games for all involved. It will also be an important moment for us as we will begin our participatory action research on people with disabilities in Mathare.
All are welcome on the day, and we look forward to your solidarity with our disability justice campaign!
