Opportunities can be open wage employment, pre-vocational, vocational, outsourcing job works, inclusive procurement or supporting entrepreneurs. Mission 1000 also aims to impact 1000 lives within the company, their leaders, customers, vendors, service providers and the larger community. The impact can be achieved by providing awareness and/or engaging the community in volunteering activities to impact intellectual and developmental disability.
