Throughout Kenya, access to community-based and government services for children with disabilities is scant and costly. Children with disabilities and their families travel long distances or have infrequent access to services. These access barriers are one of the contributing factors to family separation for children with disabilities and complicates reunification.
Disability networks, comprised of government and non-government actors, play an important role in addressing these gaps at the county level. The networks also mobilize resources, sensitize communities, and advocate to government to uphold the rights of children with disabilities. These collective actions create a more supportive environment for family-based care for children with disabilities.
