Economic Empowerment for People with Disabilities in Kenya


This project increases the capacity of Kenyan business owners with disabilities to do business with the United States and improves the business environment and climate for people with disabilities. ICI leads the project with implementing partners. The project focuses on inclusion, disability rights, and training for instructors in business development and business plan training to work with people with disabilities across Kenya, particularly in the northern and coastal regions. The multi-directional learning helps promote understanding of U.S. policy and perspectives among Kenyan entrepreneurs and business people with disabilities , emphasizing business acumen and the contributions of people with disabilities in their respective societies.
