The ASA focus is on the educational needs of people with physical disabilities. This includes post primary school children and adults who are disabled. The projects support vocational training of up to nine months in skills such as food processing, hairdressing, motorcycle repair, electronic repair, sewing, and knitting. 

Current Projects

Kenya Disabilities Project

ASA carried out a pilot training project in western Kenya in 2022-23. Four young adults with disabilities received training via the Lengo Institute for Agricultural Development. Three out of the four successfully graduated and now have the skills to seek employment. 

Gulu Disabilities Project

In cooperation with Women’s Advocacy Network (WAN), ASA is expanding the Kenya program to its members who became disabled during the Lord’s Resistance Army revolt. This program will provide scholarships for participants to study at the Disabled Person’s Union, Vocational Training Institute in Gulu.
