People with disabilities can and want to be productive members of society. In both developed and developing countries, promoting more inclusive societies and employment opportunities for people with disabilities requires improved access to basic education, vocational training relevant to labour market needs and jobs suited to their skills, interests and abilities, with adaptations as needed. Many societies are also recognizing the need to dismantle other barriers - making the physical environment more accessible, providing information in a variety of formats, and challenging attitudes and mistaken assumptions about people with disabilities.
Productive and decent work enables people with disabilities to realize their aspirations, improve their living conditions and participate more actively in society. Ensuring a disability perspective in all aspects of policy and labour legislation, effective implementation and enforcement of existing disability laws and policies and providing for equal employment opportunities and training are among the factors that contribute to the reduction of poverty and to the social and economic inclusion of people with disabilities in Kenya
Compassionate Hands for the Disabled Foundation (CHDF) is a non-governmental organization that was started in 2008 as an outreach Centre in Korogocho slum, in Kenya for children with disabilities. These were orphans and other vulnerable children from extremely poor families abandoned or orphaned through HIV/AIDS .The non-governmental organization is now serving 86 children with special needs that range from mental to physical disabilities. Currently operates in Ruai, Nairobi, Kenya, near St. Joseph Catholic Church. The children are thus divided into four groups i.e Physically challenged, Cerebral Palsy, Autism and the Mentally ill where they are taught on life skills, concentration, coordination, basic writing, leather work, bead work and computer classes. All the 86 children live in the home.
Our Vision “An inclusive society where persons with different abilities enjoy equal rights and have access to affordable quality rehabilitation services”
Mission Statement: To enable persons with disability to overcome their physical limitations and empower them economically and socially to become self-reliant and fully integrated members of their communities.
