Summary

Best Buddies brings social opportunities to people with intellectual disabilities and strives to reduce their barriers to full participation with in their community; creating a more inclusive society.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Without programs like BBK, the majority of Kenyan youth with intellectual disabilities would be unable to participate in social activities with non-disabled students. The BBK project will aid in the socialization, independence, productivity and inclusion of students with intellectual disabilities in all aspects of society.

How will this project solve this problem?

One-to-one friendships, Buddy Pairs, see each other twice a month taking part in everyday activities such as going out to eat, spending time at each other's homes and participating in sporting events. School Chapters hold 4 organized events a year.

Potential Long Term Impact

BBK aspires to forever transform the way Kenyans with intellectual disabilities are viewed in schools and the community.
