About Handicap International
MANDATE In Kenya, Handicap International works to improve the living conditions of people with disabilities and advance their rights with a special focus on refugee-related issues. Working in Kenya since 1992, Handicap International currently employs 80 local staff and three expatriates. BACKGROUND Despite the post-electoral violence of 2007-2008, Kenya has largely maintained its internal stability and its predominant role in East Africa. However, the situation of disabled and vulnerable people is still fragile and many services need to be provided, such as education, preventative care, and protection against sexual violence. The country also has an enormous population of refugees, largely from Somalia and South Sudan. This vulnerable population, especially those with disabilities, has enormous needs in terms of food, healthcare, and other basic services.
