MapAbility – The Ability Programme
Post Status: Active
Initiative recipient country/countries: Kenya
Initiative dates: 2019 –
Last updated: 8 Mar 2022
The Ability Programme exists to advocate for the rights of Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) in line with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), as well as SDGs 10 and 11. The aim of the programme is to show the challenges in bite-size chunks surrounding accessibility, or lack thereof, in the Nairobi CBD in order to prompt the start of a much wider discourse about sustainable solutions. Ability seeks to use data to eradicate the discrimination and inequities faced by PWDs in three main focus areas: Accessibility, behaviour and Citizen awareness
