In large parts of Africa Corona continues to spread at a rapid pace. In Kenya, the number of infections is steadily rising, and the government has decided to keep schools closed until January 2021. The pandemic has a major impact
on the entire population and especially the most weak and vulnerable sections of the population.
Corona meant that the ten ambassadors had to stop all their planned visits to the schools and in local communities this was to great dismay of them, our partner and us.
The ten women however, refused to throw away the knowledge and skills they had acquired through the project and therefore decided to become an active part of the fight against corona. In collaboration with our partner Association for the Physically Disabled of Kenya, the ten ambassadors therefore have been trained in how to protect themselves and others from infection of the COVID-19 virus.
They are currently visiting selected small communities to spread this knowledge, break down misinformation about the virus and support people with disabilities at risk of infection and further stigma. You can follow the ambassadors' work on our
Facebook and Instagram.
