About Kyaro Assistive Tech
Kyaro is a NGO startup that designs and manufactures assistive devices for the
sub-saharan african market. It is our mission to provide devices that are appropriate to
our users’ environments, as affordable as possible, and appealing to our users and the
people they interact with.
Our devices are set apart by our collaborative design process. Many assistive devices
used in sub-saharan Africa are designed for other markets, and are thus not durable or
safe. We design with our users in Africa to ensure that we meet the unique needs of
their environments and disabilities.
At Kyaro, we strive for a culture of quality collaboration, mutual respect and empathy,
and creativity. As an organization that practices collaborative design and has employees
from multiple continents, tribes, and social backgrounds, respectful and fruitful
collaboration across personal and cultural differences is our guiding principle.
