Our Guiding Philosophy

"We are guided by joy and hope as God’s gift to men and women of all themes and context. Joy and hope are concentric variables that increase faith and love in life so that human orientations and practices can make sense in achieving primary essentials."

Disability Discovery Association of Kenya (DDAK) is a Society for the persons with disabilities and/or special conditions/situations (the special conditions/situations mean people possessing or living as disadvantaged minorities suffering marginalization and/or discrimination). DDAK is a registered organization by the Registrar of Societies Kenya as a vehicle to facilitate the persons with disabilities and/or special conditions/situations improve and accelerate their active participation in family, community and national development. It is premised in the belief that there are very many persons with disabilities and disadvantaged minorities who have been eclipsed by their environment but have the will to access life opportunities to become ‘somebodies doing something’ and contribute to life as an expression of what they are made of.
