Edmore Masendeke


I hold an Honours Degree in Business Studies from the University of Zimbabwe and an L.L.M in European and International Human Rights Law from the University of Leeds. After obtaining my L.L.M., I participated in an Open Society Foundation funded research internship at the University of Pretoria in South Africa. My research focused on the implementation of Article 19 of the CRPD in South Africa.

I am a disability activist from Zimbabwe, where I have founded Endless Possibilities, an organisation that runs empowerment programmes for people with disabilities and advocates for their rights, in 2010. I am also a member of the board of trustees of the Dyslexia in Africa Trust and a founding member of the Pan-African Network of Youths with Disabilities.

Research interests

Independent living, access to justice, children with disabilities, legal capacity, inclusive education.
