Quite a few number of CVs were sent to us by various organisations, and walk in candidates for job placements, which goes to prove that NOWPDP is now being known for its humble achievements
What was achieved this month?
2 people, physically challenged, were hired with GUL BAHAO, an NGO.
1 physically challenged candidate was hired by Liaquat national hospital

What are we proud of?
We were pleased to know that now we are getting a lot many walk-in candidates to register with us regarding employment, which means NOWPDP has gained a certain level of recognition amongst PWDs.
