Jobs Made a Difference for People with a Disability
By rebecca trujillo - directora
This is a report to say goodbye to all our supporters of Jobs for people with a handicap program in Matagalpa Nicaragua. With the COVID problem and the economic situation, we could not sustain our jobs program our businesses had to shut their doors. We are all sad but we believe that we did our best to provide job development for people with a disability giving them opportunities to develop as workers and persons with dignity as well as economically. Jobs made a difference for many young people and the educational aspect of the program gave them skills that they might be able to implement in another job. However, we are aware that unemployment is extremely high for a person with a handicap. Our program created a positive work environment for young people with many different handicaps to continue to grow in wellbeing and confidence at work.
We want to thank all our donors for believing in us and really helping us to reach many different goals. The Young workers reached individual goals learning the culture of employment. Their God Mothers in the workplace helped guide them to a better understanding of work relationships and such basics as punctuality and production. The young people grew in work values and skills.
Most of all we continued to offer quality guidance and mentoring for the young people in our small businesses. Staff shared in the lives of these young people as they showed up each day for their work. We have to leave this work now but we want to thank you for helping us develop it. We want to thank you for believing in us and giving us much support in trying to procure jobs for people with a disability. Thus discovering different ways for young people to be hired and maintain employment so they might grow in their personal and economic independence. Thank you again for your support.
