Project Update – October 2010

October 2010 saw some delays with the hiring of candidates that were interviewed. The candidates will commence their work in November. Nevertheless, progress was made with both KESC and Renfro Crescent (both existing employers), who employed a total of 5 additional staff in October.

What was achieved this month?

  • 2 people with visual impairments were hired as call centre representatives at Karachi Electric Supply Corporation.
  • 3 people with hearing impairments were hired as machine operators at the Renfro Crescent socks factory.

What are we proud of?

  • Evaluations of 14 people with hearing impairments were held, and their CVs sent to Artistic Milliner, a garment manufacturer. NOWPDP is awaiting the results of their interviews.

What companies did we meet, or that agreed to take PWDs?

  • NOWPDP staff met with Sui Southern Gas Corporation to discuss the employment of people with disabilities. An inspection of the work environment was performed, and discussions of appropriate roles took place. SSGC has pledged to hire persons with disabilities in the future, and are in discussions with NOWPDP.

Monthly Goals:

  • Number of companies met: 1 (planned: 4)
  • Number of applicant CVs sent to employers: 17 (planned: 20)
  • Number of applicants commencing employment: 5 (planned: 10)
  • Number of applicants selected but not commenced: 9
