Project Update - November 2010

November took off as a good month as far as interviews, evaluations and selection are concerned. However all the candidates selected were put on hold by the concerned companies, for commencement in December. 

What was achieved this month?

  • Evaluations of 7 persons with a visual impairment and 6 persons with a hearing impairment held for future placements

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

  • NOWPDP staff met with TCS and mutually agreed to place people with disabilities in upcoming special projects and to establish systems for employing PWDs in regular positions.

Monthly Goals:

  • Number of companies met: 1 (planned: 4)
  • Number of applicant CVs sent to employers: 26 (planned: 20)
  • Number of applicants commencing employment: 0 (planned: 10)
