Northern Nomadic Disabled Persons’ Organization (NONDO) has launched its 2023-2027 Strategic Plan in Nairobi, Kenya. The strategic plan was launched on March 16th at the Emory Hotel in Kileleshwa. The plan outlines the vision, mission, goals, and priorities of the organization for the next five years.
NONDO advocates for the rights, inclusion, and participation of persons with disabilities from pastoralist/nomadic communities. The organization has adopted a participatory approach in developing the strategic plan, including sampling champions using google docs for data collection and reviewing NONDO’s previous strategic plans, reports, policies, and national laws.
The Goal of NONDO’s strategic plan is to utilize advocacy as a means to re-engineer the service delivery infrastructure and enhancing space for meaningful participation of the persons with disability in Arid and Semi-arid areas in Kenya. This forms a strong foundation for advocacy programs that enable effective outcomes for persons with disabilities.
The launch of the strategic plan is a significant milestone for NONDO, and the organization believes it represents a strong, able, and demanding future for the organization. With a focus on building strong leadership and new innovations, NONDO hopes to empower pastoralist/nomadic communities towards achieving diverse, inclusive, and res. The slogan of NONDO, “Able to do things differently,” reflects the organization’s commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of persons with disabilities.
