Challenge

Training laptops were being used for textile and digital design training by NOWPDP both, in-house and at various special schools that, over the past year have been used to train around 230 trainees in these skills. The trainings, allow children and adolescents with disabilities, to become better versed and adept at using technology in regards to their chosen skill. However, due to the tragic theft of the 19 training laptops, the trainings and all the students' progress has come to a halt.

Solution

NOWPDP, aims to gather funds to restart vocational training both in-house and at special schools, as soon as possible, and to make sure the trainees do not lose out on their progress. Furthermore, the training will provide a foundation on which the trainees can build upon if they choose to pursue careers in the field of textile and digital design.

Long-Term Impact

By equipping children with disabilities with the basic skills in the aforementioned skills, NOWPDP enables them to pursue educational and/or employment opportunities, which ultimately contributes towards their socio-economic inclusion.
