Database Management (Junior Assignment)
As a junior, you will support the partner organisation in setting up a suitable data management system and train the team in data collection and analysis.
There is very little information and data on children with disabilities and their families in Kenya. Gaps in interventions have been observed as well as a lack of well-trained personnel in both the education and health sectors. However, children with disabilities require consistent intervention in order for them to have the best outcome in life and reach their fullest potential. More accurate and current data would be a great asset in order to design interventions that have more impact on the lives of children with disabilities. Furthermore, exact numbers of beneficiaries and interventions will support accurate reporting programming and advocacy strategies.
Special Education Professionals (SEP) is a multi-disciplinary team of special education professionals working within the framework of education, rehabilitation and healthcare in Kenya. Using the diverse expertise, SEP provides sustainable interventions that support children with disabilities and empower their families and caregivers. SEP aims at an inclusive society where children with disabilities are actively participating in their families, educational institutions, and communities, providing them equal opportunities to reach their fullest potential.
