Project Update - April 2011

April has been a favourable and eventful month in terms of placements of PWDs. A total number of 14 placements were made and another 18 PWDs underwent a week training as call centre representatives.

New companies were approached, and for the first time the armed forces was contacted too. Once again NOWPDP was approached by Civil Aviation Authority Pakistan and an interest was expressed in having the other airports to have audits for accessibility for PWDs. 

What was achieved this month?

  • 14 candidates were selected in total in various companies.
  • 11 candidates were interviewed and 8 were hired to start in April and May.
  • A call centre outsourcing company was contacted, and they held a week’s training for the visually impaired, for call centre reps

What are we proud of?

  • 3 intellectually challenged candidates have completed their internship successfully at Gul Ahmed and have been offered regular employment.

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

  • Green fingers was approached and the outcome was positive leading to the employment of 3 PWDs
  • Catcos, a call centre outsourcing company, was contacted and they chose to run a training course free of cost for 20 visually impaired and physically challenged candidates

Monthly Goals:

  • Number of companies met: 2 (planned 2)
  • Number of applicant CVs sent to employers: 24 (planned 20)
  • Number of applicants selected but not started: 6
  • Number of candidates who joined placements: 14 (planned 10)
  • Number of candidates since October 2010 who joined placements: 46 (goal: 60)
