Project Update - May 2012

Summary of achievements

The month of May seemed favourable as far as recruitment is concerned of PWDs. A total number of 13 persons with disabilities were employed in various areas of work.

However, since the re-launching of our employment programme, which is now known as NRS (NOWPDP Recruitment Services), we have introduced a recruitment fee to companies that employ/use our services for recruitment, but so far we haven’t been too successful in receiving any fee. This fee is part of NOWPDP's shift towards greater self-sustainability. As companies begin to pay service fees, donations for this project will be phased out.

What was achieved this month

  • 4 female candidates were inducted as machine operators at Artistic Milliners
  • 5 persons were employed by Gul Bahao
  • 3 deaf persons were employed by OCS Courier Services
  • 1 person was employed at Green Fingers Nursery

What are we proud of

We are inching towards our target of employing 15 PWDs per month. Quite a few number of employed persons were female, which also feels like an achievement.

Monthly goals

  • Number of companies met: 5 (planned: 5)
  • Number of CVs sent: 28 (planned: 20)
  • Number of applicants commencing employment: 13
