Malanga is an isolated, rural area in Kilifi County, Kenya. The population is around 12,000; 64% of people in the area are aged 19 or younger. There are more than 600 children and young people with impairments and more than 200 with severe impairments living in this area.
There is no educational provision available for disabled children. In fact, the participation of disabled children in their communities and in education is extremely limited. Most are hidden in their homes, receiving no education, healthcare or social interaction. The Malanga Inclusion Project, Disability Africa’s newest project, aims to end their isolation and meet their needs.
