inABLE is a non-profit organization that empowers blind and visually impaired students in Africa through assistive computer technology education to equip this typically neglected group with IT tools, skills and resources necessary for them to become innovative, productive, and highly functional members of society.

To date, inABLE has enrolled over 1,400 blind and visually impaired students and teachers and established seven assistive technology computer labs in Kenya.  Visit inABLE.org to learn more about our mission and organization.
