Ms. Wangare: It’s the project on access to the ballot box, which we are implementing together with Zanzibar and Lebanon with Inclusion International. In this project, we hope to enhance political participation of persons with intellectual disabilities, so we’ll be working with families, self-advocates, and electoral commission of Kenya to ensure that there’s reasonable accommodation for voting rights for persons with intellectual disability and the voting system is accessible to all persons with intellectual disability.
