May has been a successful month in terms of placing PWDs in gainful employment. A total number of 12 candidates across 3 types of disabilities were employed, namely deaf, intellectually challenged and physically challenged.
Some new multinationals were approached, who were very keen on hiring in the future.
What was achieved this month?
12 candidates were selected in total in various companies.
2 employment camps were held for the deaf and mute and the visually impaired respectively
A new evaluation questionnaire form was created and sent to all companies who are our present employers.
What are we proud of?
2 separate employment/evaluation camps were held for the deaf and the visually impaired and about 20 candidates were evaluated.
What companies did we meet, or that agreed to take PWDs?
A total number of 5 companies were contacted, and 2 were met with personally, and both seemed keen on the idea of hiring PWDs. They were National Foods and Karachi Duty Free.
Others were AKSWB, Pharmatec and Walls Ice-cream.
Number of companies met: 2 (planned: 2)
Number of applicant CVs sent to employers: 20 (planned: 20)
Number of candidates started employment: 12 (planned: 10)
