Persons with disabilities are disproportionately represented in the poorest quintile of the population and face additional challenges due to discriminatory laws and policies, environmental barriers, and lack of support services that would enable the enjoyment of their rights.

Donors and partners

UN-Habitat has been able to put up the first wheelchair accessible matatu in Nairobi with the help of the Belgium embassy in Kenya.
