Every disability and chronic condition is unique and each person needs to find the solution which works best for his/her own circumstances. The EnableMe platform whether in Kenya, Switzerland or Germany offers its users the ability to solve life’s and employability challenges due to its unique combination of practical and digestible content, peer-support, expert advice and targeted services.
Every day, EnableMe members and users are supported in key areas covering economic empowerment, social participation, personal growth, health and wellbeing.
Our Impact in numbers
Life quality for one billion people with disabilities worldwide. A society in which people with disabilities and chronic conditions are heard, active and represented in all areas.
We focus on key outcome levels:
- Personal Growth
- Financial Empowerment
- Societal Participation
- Health & Wellbeing
To report our impact, we apply the IOOI logic used around the world: Input, Output, Outcome, Impact. This enables us to clearly highlight what we invest (input), what we create (output), the individual changes we promote within our target group (outcome) and the over social impact we want to achieve.
The EnableMe Foundation invests first and foremost in a high-performance team who will contribute experience and know-how to devise effective programs and build long-term partnerships.
"The peer exchange makes me believe that everything will be okay". Tanja suffers from chronic seizures. When she finds out that she will be forever reliant on a wheelchair, her life is turned upside down. She is shrouded by despair and is desperate to hear from others in a similar situation. As part of the peer program, she reaches out to Sarina: the beginning of a priceless interaction that provided Tanja with the social support, assurance, and guidance she needed to help her through this turbulent time.’’
‘’Saskia was devastated when she was told that her daughter would never be able to earn a living because of her disability. Saskia felt in her own heart, however, that her daughter was capable of making a life for herself and becoming financially independent. She searched desperately online for a second opinion. After coming across EnableMe, Saskia was encapsulated by all the stories in the community from parents in similar situations. She decided to post about her experience in the forum and was inundated with positive replies from the other parents. She felt inspired by their advice, as well as the information from the platform's experts. She regained her sense of hope - she believed again that her daughter has a chance to follow her dreams.’’
‘’Linus was struggling with two issues simultaneously: the search for an apprenticeship and being visually impaired. By signing up to the EnableMe peer program ‘Young people help young people’, he was put in contact with other young people with disabilities. He no longer felt alone in his struggles. He was able to gain valuable tips and support from people just like him - a sense of belonging he hadn’t really had before. The insight and encouragement from this new network of peers armed Linus with the information and know-how to, first of all, find an apprenticeship that matched his goals and abilities, and ultimately navigate his way through the recruitment process.‘’
