We have developed a framework of disability profile & segmentation to understand the various supply & demand challenges. Based on our learnings, we developed various livelihood models to include all kinds of disabilities. Watch this video to understand more.
We have developed a framework of disability profile and segmentation to understand the various supply and demand challenges. Based on our learnings, we have developed various models to include all kinds of disabilities in the Livelihood landscape.
By reaching the unreached, we have formed new models by studying local requirements. As a large population is in the rural areas, self-employment is a good choice for economic independence. Hence, an entrepreneurship development program was introduced with the help of mainstream entrepreneurship training centers like the RUDSETI/RSETIs. Mobilization of the candidates was done with the help of the state government’s Village Rehabilitation Workers, who work under the leadership of District Disabled Welfare Officer and the Multi Rehabilitation Workers. A training program for entrepreneurship development for persons with disability was developed and introduced by the National Academy for RUDSETI and EnAble India.
A business case for hiring persons with disability, employee sensitization, Job Analysis, Initial handholding, Workplace Solutions and post placement follow ups, have made it a good case for employers to hire persons with disability and find them as a productive workforce.
We have conducted Job fairs to find wage employment in urban and semi-urban areas. We have been reaching out to persons with disability via the university model, Collaborative Trainings in partnership with employers. Incubation Center for outsourced work, Contract jobs, work at home options or sheltered work environments for persons with severe disability are various other models that have been created.
These livelihood models, which have been developed, have seen various successes and learnings. This can be replicated across the country for helping find gainful employment for all kind of persons with disability and across geographies.
