QUARTER THREE (Q3) 2019 – ADVOCACY AND AWARENESS

The National Fund for the Disabled of Kenya (NFDK), an endowment Fund established under the Perpetual Succession Act Cap 164 of the Laws of Kenya. The Fund joined AIC Kajiado Child Care Centre on 8th March 2019 as the centre celebrated its 40 years of existence. It is worth noting that NFDK has all along supported the institution on their habilitation and rehabilitation programmes and they are also beneficiaries of a flagship project where a nursery and staffroom facility was built and equipped at a cost of Kshs. 2.5 million in 2012.

The theme of the day was “My Wheelchair, My right to inclusion”. The plenary discussed the gains made in regards to wheelchair access for persons with disabilities. A procession from APDK to Safaricom and back was made as we raised awareness to the members of the public on the importance of wheelchair in inclusion agenda.
