Project Update - October 2011

October has not been a favourable month in terms of placements of PWDs. A total number of 3 placements were made. The project team is working to identify companies that are more receptive to hiring people with disabilities, through partner organisations. Events will be held to engage multiple potential employers at once, to utilise time more effectively.

What was achieved this month?

  • 3 candidates were selected and commenced employment.
  • 11 candidates were interviewed/evaluated in this month.

What are we proud of?

  • 1 intellectually challenged candidate completed their internship successfully at Gul Ahmed and have been offered regular employment
  • Catcos, a call centre outsourcing company, was contacted 4 months ago and they chose to run a training course free of cost for 20 visually impaired and physically challenged candidates. In this regard KESC have interviewed 2 visual impaired recommended by CATCOS and the short listed candidates are waiting for second interview call form KESC.
  • NOWPDP team visited Artistic Milliners to see the performance of employed PWDs.Performance of people are satisfied according to the employers.

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

  • Pakistan Cables Pvt Ltd was approached and the outcome was positive.

Monthly Goals:

  • Number of companies met: 1  (planned 2)
  • Number of applicant CVs sent to employers: 14 (planned 20)
  • Number of applicants selected but not started: 0
  • Number of candidates who joined placements: 3 (planned 10)
