Story

The Action Foundation aims to raise funds towards the construction of a community inclusion hub for children with disabilities and their families in Kibera slum. 

The Action Foundation (TAF) is a grassroots organization registered in Kenya. It was established in the 2010 and is registered by The Non-Governmental Organizations Coordination Board of Kenya. TAF exists to break barriers to education for children and young people with disabilities. 

TAF envisions a society where disability is no longer seen as a curse but where all children regardless of ability have equal opportunities and rights to education, health and social inclusion. We operate a therapy & learning centre  on leased premises in Mashimoni Village, at the heart of Kibera slum, where children with conditions such as cerebral palsy, hydrocephalus, autism, spina bifida and Down’s Syndrome receive physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nutritional care, informal education and training in activities of daily living for five days per week. Through TAF’s therapy and care, children develop gross and fine motor skills, as well as cognitive, speech, and social skills. 

There has been a growing demand and a need to design more sustainable approaches to serve and accommodate more  children with disabilities and further the impact of TAF. Constructing our hub for children with disabilities is one step towards meeting these needs.

The hub is currently being built on a piece of property that we recently purchased in Kibera slums in Kianda Village. At the facility, we will offer early literacy, occupational therapy, art therapy and recreational activities for children with disabilities.

Through the hub, our dedicated team will enable children with physical and intellectual disabilities who have been isolated & hidden in Kibera to access education & health opportunities. We’ll do this through rehabilitation, provision of assistive devices, education resources and social activities that will ease their transition to school. 

Support us by:
  •  Donating a bag of cement or more.
A bag of cement is Ksh 700 (7 USD)
  • Donating any amount towards the construction.
