SITE Enterprise Promotion is a Kenyan not-for-profit development organisation, whose goal is the promotion of employment opportunities and economic growth among small-scale producers and enterprises. The focus of the work of SITE is on markets systems and facilitating access to appropriate skills and information by working with others in order to address systemic constraints faced by poor communities and vulnerable groups such as women, youth and persons with disabilities (PWDs). The vision of SITE is ‘better quality of live for the peoples of the world’.
SITE in partnership with APT UK, Kenya Union of the Blind (KUB) and National Union of Women with Disabilities of Uganda (NUWODU), are implementing a 3-year project whose goal is to improve the implementation of the Convention of Rights of Persons with Disability (CRPD) in order to promote the full and equal enjoyment of all human rights by women living with disabilities in Kenya and Uganda.
This project will work with partnerships between DPOs (National and community-based DPOs) representing members with diverse disabilities, CSOs (National and local) engaged in disability movement and WWD rights, and other relevant diverse stakeholders both State (e.g. NGEC, KNHRC, NHIF, NSSF and their equivalent in Uganda) and Non-State Actors. The project will contribute to the realization of four key results namely; (1) Increased capacity of 22 DPOs to advocate and monitor the disability mainstreaming process, (ii) Improved awareness of CPRD and related legislation among DPOs, public and private institutions and other Human Rights organisations with improved enforcement of non-compliance. (iii) Improvements at county level to implement CRPD – including improved NAP guidelines (Uganda) and county disability acts (Kenya). (iv) Models at county level demonstrated: increased capacity of public offices to deliver appropriate services to PWDs and meet targets e.g. quotas for employment; capacity and number of WWD to access training and employment opportunities; inclusion of WWD in county development plans, and data segregation documentation at county level by gender and disability. The Project is targeting 51,000 and 21,500 women living with disabilities (WWD) residing in Kenya (Meru and Machakos counties) and Gulu County in Uganda, respectively.
