Kenya: National Leadership Workshop for Disabled Workers

leadership training for disabled workers in Kenya
The StreetNet affiliate in Kenya, the Kenyan National Alliance of Informal Traders,  held a leadership training workshop for its disabled members on March 1-2nd.  It was the first time that such a meeting was held and was much appreciated by all participants. Disabled people and albinos face considerable discrimination in Kenya.  KENASVIT is one of the few organisations which is actively organising disabled workers, encouraging them to take up leadership positions in their organisation and including their demands in negotiations with the municipalities.

KENASVIT is about to start  a survey of its members in 7 municipalities in order to collect their demands for a New Manifesto.  Disabled workers will be one of the issues included in the survey.
