Douglas Sidialo Speaker Biography


After becoming blind as a result of the devastating US embassy bombing in Nairobi in 1998, Douglas Sidialo has journeyed back to life. Through resilience, acceptance, courage, determination and belief, he has become an inspiration to many around the world.  

Douglas has become one of the most accomplished African blind adventurers, and has never let his blindness interfere with his passion for an incredibly fulfilling, satisfying and harmonious journey. Douglas is believed to be the first blind African to reach above the summit of mount Kilimanjaro-Uhuru Peak: 5,895 meters above sea level on September, 10, 2005. From January, 13 to May, 12, 2007, he cycled the length of Africa from North to South, through 10 countries, on the Tour D’Afrique (Cairo to Cape Town), successfully completing the 12,000 kilometres in 95 days, and becoming the first blind person and the first African to achieve this feat. 

He has exemplified the spirit of servant leadership, holding various community positions over time. These include President of the Kenya National Paralympics Committee, Board member of the National Council for People with Disabilities in Kenya, and the United Nations Habitat Goodwill Ambassador for Safer Cities. 

As a motivational speaker, Douglas has inspired many thousands of people around the world, by sharing his story of overcoming some of the most difficult obstacles one can imagine in life, and how he met those challenges with dignity, courage, and hope. He travels extensively, sharing his insights and motivating people across the world, through his speaking engagements and his extreme sporting activities.
