An inclusive Kenyan society

CBM’s work in Kenya aims to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities through specialised service provision and by addressing the various barriers towards an inclusive society.
CBM desires to be a long term development partner to Kenya in the journey towards a more disability friendly country, in which there is improved awareness in various sectors of society regarding disability and increased participation of people with special abilities in national development.

CBM's work in Kenya

CBM Kenya’s Strategic Plan for the period 2012 to 2014 has outlined the two main components of

Programme implementation

CBM will continue to implement a country specific service delivery program integrated into regular community development work.

CBM in Kenya supports community development using a human rights based model that focuses on every person's potential and the opportunities they have to be fully included in society. A human rights based model should ensure that all persons with disabilities and their communities experience empowerment, equity of entitlement and responsibility, dignity, justice and respect.


  • Working towards disability policy implementation at national and local levels on one hand.
  •  In line with the CBM Core value to practice and promote an inclusive society, distinct plans for improved accessibility for and inclusion of persons with disabilities in targeted sectors of society.

To achieve our strategic priorities CBM Kenya commits itself to utilising its expertise and experience with disability in Kenya to create meaningful change and be a resource to other interested parties so that the effect of our own efforts can be multiplied.

We also commit to working collaboratively with programme partners, including our implementing partners, to strengthen our voices, build capacity in ourselves and in others, use limited resources efficiently and ultimately reach out to more persons with disabilities together.
