Project Update - August 2012

Summary of achievements

This month seemed favourable  as far as recruitment is concerned of PWDs. A total number of 12 persons with disabilities were employed in a sock factory as machine operators and 1 employee selected in Ace Consultant (IT Consultant Agency) in the 2nd week of this month.

2 meetings were held with Sonya Batla (a designer) and Express Tribune; they were positive and encouraging for future hiring of people with disabilities.

What was achieved this month

  • 12 deaf candidates were inducted as machine operators at CRESCOX PVT LTD
  • 1 physically challenged person was employed by ACE Consultant
  • 1 visually impaired person was hired by KASB bank

What are we proud of

  • Our monthly results are back in line with targets, after some slow months.

Companies met who have pledged to hire

August has an average month in term of meeting new Companies. A total number of 3 new companies were met, their names being:

  • Sonya Batla
  • Express Tribune
  • Al-Tauq Group

Monthly goals

Number of companies met: 5 (planned: 3)

Number of CVs sent: 29 (planned: 20)

Number of applicants commencing employment: 14

Number of candidates selected but not commenced: 0

 

Due to a slow uptake and unfavourable responses from organisations, NOWPDP will not continue attempting to collect a service fee from employing organisations. Over this trial in the past 6 months, some organisations committed to hiring and paying a service fee, but later backed out. Our feeling is that a greater number of people will be placed into jobs without the service fee, and that NOWPDP will continue to do fundraising to cover operational costs.
