About

Deaf Empowerment Society of Kenya (DESK) is a self-led organisation, which focuses on the hearing-impaired community.
It aims to empower hearing-impaired people – especially women and girls, while increasing their access to public services in terms of sexual and reproductive health (SRH).
A key strategy is to build the capacities of duty bearers, including police, health and judiciary bodies, involved in gender based violence prevention and mitigation. The goal is to help them become advocates and allies in favour of people with disabilities’ SRH.
