Abstract

This piece of creative non-fiction documents the author’s experiences collaborating with the Ministry of Education in Kenya in 2011. The aim of the project was to develop sustainable inclusive primary school programs where children with and without disabilities access education in a shared space. Specifically, the purpose of the project was to establish the foundations of an inclusive education system aligned with Article 24 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). However, the author’s experiences encompassed more than an education system. The project brought to light issues of (post)colonialism and development. It also transcended cultural identity, and crossed country lines. Connectivity and community were at the core of the experience.
