Awareness Events

Disability awareness helps in subsiding the stereotypical mindset of the society, hence providing vast opportunities for everyone to get involved in creating a positive, inclusive society for all. 

SEP has attended and organized awareness events with information stands, presentations, and use of local media on disabilities and inclusion. On such occasions SEP distributes the brochures on different conditions.

Through our sibling workshops and peer workshops in schools SEP realized that awareness creating starts from home and the school environment. The workshops have led young children and adolescents to gain empathy and have positive attitudes. This particular attitude then further grows on an individual, making them better citizens as they mature.

SEP organized awareness walks with school communities in Mwiki Githurai, Mukuru, and Kibra in cooperation with other stakeholders. SEP also facilitated theatre performances by the children and adolescents to bring their messages to the community in Mwiki, Ruiru, and in the National Museum in partnership with The Theatre Company, and in  Buruburu, Kibra, Kahawa Sukari, Mukuru, and Mimosa in partnership with Sarakasi.

The fashion show by children and youth with disabilities organized in April 2019 was an amazing event that created awareness on disabilities, inclusion, and talents. The event was covered by different media houses (see link for the Fashion Hub Extra coverage) and a video was produced by Front Pace with the highlights of the show (see link).

Unfortunately the fashion show scheduled for April 2020 had to be cancelled because of Covid-19.
