Disability Advocacy Training Materials

Kupenda’s Disability Training Programs are cost-efficient and effective in reducing stigma and discrimination against people with disabilities and their families and improving their access to medical care, education and community inclusion.

Our disability training tools are developed using human centered design and field testing in our innovation center: Kilifi County, Kenya.

Each of our training programs are tailored to different community groups including Pastors, Traditional Healers, Government Leaders and Families Impacted by Disabilities.

The Impact of Our Cost-Effective Disability Training Model

An 18-month, mix-method program evaluation showed that, on average

  • 1 Kupenda disability training workshop costs just $300
  • 25 Leaders participate in each workshop
  • After the workshop, 65% of the trained leaders act on behalf of the children with disabilities

This means that just 1 workshop results in

  • Disability sensitization activities that reach 5,070 community members
  • Counseling and referrals that improve the lives of 396 children with disabilities
