Kenya Inclusive Education for Economic Empowerment

Description

This project will increase the capacity of Kenyan business owners with disabilities to do business with the United States and improve the business environment and climate for people with disabilities. ICI will lead the project with implementing partners. The project will focus on inclusion, disability rights, and training for instructors who are already doing business development and business plan training to work with people with disabilities across Kenya, particularly in the northern and coastal regions. The learning will be multi-directional to help promote understanding of U.S. policy and perspectives among entrepreneurs and business people with disabilities in Kenya with a greater appreciation of business acumen and valuing the contributions of people with disabilities in their respective societies.
