Project completed implementation in March 2022
Leonard Cheshire's project aimed to increase the educational and vocational opportunities of 2,260 girls with disabilities in five counties within the Lake Region of Kenya. It tackled the specific barriers that girls with disabilities face in order to improve their quality of life, skills and livelihood opportunities.
The girls in this project were helped to transition through primary into secondary school, vocational training and self-employment, or adult education and home learning programmes. In tandem, the project worked to build positive attitudes and community support for disabled children. It also worked with families to create households that are willing and able to support the girls' journey through to adulthood and beyond.
