The Professional Fellows Program on Inclusive Disability Employment (PFP-IDE) is an international exchange program that provides mentorship, networking and guidance for professionals from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda committed to inclusive employment for persons with disabilities.

PFP-IDE Fellows participate in five-week exchange trainings at U.S. university centers for education and research on disabilities. They learn strategies to empower persons with disabilities and develop inclusive employment projects to implement in Africa.

PFP-IDE is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. It is administered by the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD), the Institute for Community Inclusion (ICI-UMass Boston), and Humanity & Inclusion (HI).
