Inua Mama’s Kitty
Sight of Relief promotes Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Programs through the Community Based Rehabilitation Matrix (CBRM) dubbed as “Inua Mama’s Kitty” which signifies building capacities of women (mothers) and caregivers of Children with Disabilities in Kenya. Inua Mama’s Kitty is a Socioeconomic Welfare Transformation Program (SWTP) whose mission is to achieve a sustainable livelihood in the household of women and children with disabilities. Developmental Disabilities are the least understood conditions that affect individuals from childhood during pregnancy, at delivery, or after delivery, hence are often out of sight, out of mind, and out of planning options in communities around the World. This disability comes with compounded extra costs as compared to other children without disabilities which require 24-hour (regular) special care that involves; diaper usage, daily anticonvulsant medicine usage, special diet, and weekly therapy services lifelong. Inua Mama’s Kitty initiative demonstrates a change that will implement “Donations Oriented Norms (D.O.N)” to “Active Participatory Industrial Production (A.P.I.P)” to ensure the future of Persons with Disabilities especially children, women, and the aged have equal rights to access to services and opportunities as anyone else in society.
