The inclusive elections project is aimed at strengthening Participation of Persons with Disabilities in the Electoral Process in Kenya with an expected goal that Kenya will become a more inclusive democracy. The expected project outcome is that Persons with Disabilities have increased participation in electoral processes in the 2017 electoral cycle in Kenya, supported by more inclusive programming, and legal and institutional frameworks.

ANDY intends to achieve this by working with local Disabled People’s Organizations (DPOs) in six counties in Kenya Nairobi, Kisumu, Homa Bay, Migori, Siaya, and Kiambu. In the inclusive elections project ANDY is collaborating and partnering with Handicap International, United Disabled Persons of Kenya (UDPK) Independent Elections and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and other electoral actors like ELOG, URAIA, NDI, PPDT, ORPP, Judiciary, Ministry of Education, Security agencies in ensuring that the expected goals of the project are achieved.
