In this thematic area, CDSK intends to create a platform for persons with disabilities to advocate for their rights through the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability (UNCRPD) and the Persons With Disability Act 2006.
We network with both national and international organizations to raise awareness on concerns related to persons with disabilities.
One of our Advocacy initiatives is the Young Voices project. The Young Voices is a Global Campaign project of the Leonard Cheshire Global Alliance funded by the European Union (EU), which brings together groups of young persons with disabilities from countries across Africa, Asia and America.
The Young Voices Project, is implemented in Makueni, Nairobi,Kisumu and Kajiado.The project targeted youths of ages 13- 25 who advocated for the rights of persons living with disabilities.
The members meet on a monthly basis to discuss the issues that affect their lives, develop their understanding of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD),
Disability Act of 2006 and any other human rights instruments.
