The overall impact of IPEI project is for ‘Persons with disabilities to have increased wellbeing and inclusion within private sector employment’ in Bangladesh and Kenya. The project will address barriers to employment for people with all types of disability within the private sector and achieve the following 3 outcomes: National systems and policies support enabling environments for equal access to private sector employment; private sector is more inclusive of persons with disabilities; and increased economic empowerment and opportunities for persons with disabilities to participate in labour market. IPEI project will be delivered by a consortium led by Leonard Cheshire which brings together a diverse and complimentary group of northern and southern actors: CBM, Plan International UK (Plan), Action Network for the Disabled Kenya (ANDY), International Labour Organisation (ILO) and Bangladesh Business and Disability Network (BBDN), London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), Global Disability Innovation Hub (GDIH), European Disability Forum (EDF), World Bank. The implementing partners will be advised by international experts from Accenture, World Bank, The Nippon Foundation and Benetech.
