Universities Disability Inclusion Network Workshop
Attaining higher education increases opportunities in the job market, creativity and innovation and it improves the overall quality of life. Education bridges the gap of poverty for the youth and more so, persons with disabilities. But then, how accessible is this higher education to persons with disabilities?
Why Choose Us?
A choice that makes the difference.
Disability inclusion network workshop accelerated disability inclusion dialogue and this has sustained linking and learning process. A lot of consultation is going on between universities and different practitioners on best inclusive practices. The cooperative university is drafting the disability inclusion policy and Umma University (Muslim University) has opened its door for more interaction on the same topic. All this was because of the workshop since members present discovered it is possible for students with disabilities to access higher education and excel.
The same workshop prompted the University of Nairobi, Umma University, Cooperative University, and USIU-Africa to start the process of having a disability inclusion office. Last week the USIU-Africa advertised for that position. This is a very positive move.
