Kupenda for the Children
There are 580 million children with disabilities worldwide; 80% of them live in lower- and middle-income countries. Most of these children are neglected, abused, and excluded from community life. Kupenda for the Children is a non-profit organization that envisions a fully integrated society where people of all abilities have access to health, education, and a loving community. Each year, through partnership with local professionals (primarily in Kenya), Kupenda trains thousands of families, youth, and leaders as disability advocates who help 40,000 children with disabilities access the education, medical care, and inclusion they deserve.
