The Action Foundation (TAF) have a vision of a fully inclusive Africa where children, women, and girls with disabilities can realize their maximum potential.

What do they do?

The Action Foundation improve the quality of life for children, women, and girls with disabilities through programmes covering their entire lifecycle, from early years, adolescence, and adulthood. TAF believe in a world where children, women, and girls with disabilities live free from violence, exploitation, and discrimination and have equal opportunities to succeed.

TAF’s interventions catalyse access to health, education, and economic empowerment through direct service provision and strengthening the capacity of existing education, health systems, and networks. They empower caregivers, teachers and institutions to nurture and support children, women and girls with disabilities to reach their full potential.

Over the years, TAF’s work has grown from providing direct service to a small group of schools, parents, and children with disabilities to widened social impact through creative empowerment, advocacy, and capacity-building initiatives in Kenya. They partner with corporates, local and regional institutions, national and county governments, and agencies because they recognise the essential role of collaboration and co-creation in yielding sustainable outcomes.

Our plans together

Able Child began working with TAF in 2023. TAF ‘s mission to drive resources to organisations focused on children with disabilities in addition to building a collective voice to advocate for their inclusion is a message that Able Child also stands by. Together, Able Child and TAF will provide a platform to enter spaces that may not be available to single organisations and ensure that the needs of children with disabilities take centre stage at a global level.

Able Child are also working with TAF to develop a refined tooklit and guides that facilitate the implementation of inclusive education programmes that incorporate different disability-inclusive approaches, such as Child to Child, sports and play, ECE, WASH and children protection.
