Nondo Kenya

Registered in 2011, NONDO is a Kenyan Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) that advocates for the rights, inclusion, and participation of persons with disability from nomadic/ pastoralist communities of Kenya to ensure they live dignified lives. NONDO is the first organisation of persons with disabilities (OPD) to exclusively target nomadic/pastoralist counties of Kenya to amplify unique circumstance surrounding the lives of nomadic/pastoralists Persons with Disabilities in these counties.

NONDO serves Arid and Semi-Arid counties in Kenya which have suffered from marginalization and isolation from the rest of the country. These counties are also prone to conflicts over resources, clans, and inter-community feuds, resulting in deaths and leaving behind hundreds of Persons with Disabilities. These counties have low indicators in accessing basic social services, and different communities share limited resources, increasing the chances of collision. Persons with Disabilities in these regions face double marginalization and are viewed as a curse and a burden to society, leading to stereotyping, profiling, and stigmatization.

Currently NONDO has different programs and interventions in 12 Counties including Mandera, Wajir, Garisa, Tana River, Marsabit, Isiolo, Kajiado, Narok. West Pokot, Turkana, Samburu and Baringo
