Platforms and youth with disabilities

Caribou Digital and Mastercard Foundation partnered with InABLE and Technoprise Global, two expert advocacy organizations for inclusive technology in Kenya, to explore how young people with disabilities are leveraging digital platforms to earn a living – an area that to-date has not received much attention.

The research body comprises a survey of 148 participants with three types of disabilities: visual, hearing. and physical impairment, qualitative research, a UX testing and digital accessibility assessment of three popular digital platforms in Kenya and self-shot videos by six research participants.

This research was a first exploration, which we hope will lead to more work and funding into improving inclusivity and accessibility of digital platforms to all.
