CBM kenya

Strategic Goals

Although Kenya has put in place some disability specific legislation, signed, and ratified the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, (CRPD) and subscribes to Sustainable Development Goals, (SDGs) and agenda 2030 framework, persons with disabilities continue to experience social and economic exclusion: poor quality of life and lack of inclusive affordable services. Organizations of Persons with disabilities (OPDs) are still struggling with effective organizational management and high-quality programme delivery and are therefore not able to fully deliver on their mandate among other issues. Similarly, development organizations and governments are still struggling with implementing disability inclusive, and rights centered policies and services. This strategic plan has been developed through a consultative

process, reviewing documents from CBM Global and disability specific policies and literature in Kenya, interviews with CBM Kenya’s board members and stakeholders. There has also been extensive consultation with CBM Global’s secretariate and board. This strategy identifies and seeks to address the organizational needs facing CBM Kenya and the need to scale up Programmes that focus on disability inclusive development through a human right centered approach. One of the biggest opportunity within the disability sector that this strategy seeks to capitalize on is the increased recognition by government and other development actors that inclusion of persons with disabilities in all spheres of life is a right. This strategy identifies funding as a risk which must be addressed if all goals outlined here are to be met.
