Nondo Kenya

The Desert Fashion Gala


Despite the strides made in increased advocacy for the rights of women in Kenya, women with disabilities have remained a marginalized group with their rights left out of the conversation most of the times. In order to amplify the voices of this group NONDO in 2017 introduced a
beauty contest called The Desert Fashion Gala. Driven by the goal of creating awareness, visibility and highlight the challenges faced by women and girls with disabilities, the beauty contest allows Women with disabilities compete amongst themselves. The winners and other participants of this component have remained integral part of our advocacy work with success stories.
