Where We Work

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

― Margaret Mead

  • Kenya. The Kilifi County of Kenya is our innovation center where we have worked alongside our partners at Kuhenza for the Children to help thousands of children with disabilities access care and support since 1999. This county is also where we use human-centered design strategies to develop and test our disability advocacy training content for pastors, traditional healers and government leaders.
  • Tanzania. Since 2015, various partners in Tanzania have been using our community-based rehabilitation and pastor advocacy training programs to improve care, support and justice for children with disabilities. Some of our partners in Tanzania include TRACED, EFMRED, and The Gabriella Children’s Center
  • Zambia. In August of 2018, Special Hope Network (SHN) ran our Disability Advocacy workshop for 32 pastors. The program was such a success that they ran it a second time with a new group of pastors in November of 2018 and plan to continue these trainings in the future. SHN led the pilot independently with remote support from our U.S. and Kenyan teams. We were connected to this organization through our grant and training program under the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID).
  • Sierra Leone. In August of 2018, we facilitated our Disability Advocacy workshop for 80 pastors in Sierra Leone in partnership with The International Theological Education Network (ITEN) and EduNations, with professional support from World Hope International (WHI) and Humanity & Inclusion. A family foundation funded this project.
  • Haiti. In preparation for a 2019 Disability Advocacy pilot program, Pazapa has asked us to conduct a needs assessment among their beneficiary populations in southeastern Haiti. The Ansara Family Foundation is currently funding this work.

Kupenda designs, implements and supports disability training and inclusion programs. Our innovation center is in Kenya but we work with partners and disability advocates in low and middle income countries around the world.
