Project Report | May 10, 2019
We are co-creating the future

By Sebastian Zapata | Project Contributor

A new proposal for training that facilitates employability

At MAKAIA we are excited to work on a new challenge: We are transforming our training proposals based on the opportunities of the environment, the analysis of available figures, contact with organizations of great experience and evaluation of the most demanded competences for the employability of people with hearing disability.

How are we doing this?

Currently, we are developing a series of meetings with facilitators who have devoted their entire lives to training within organizations that have worked for decades to include people with hearing disabilities. During these encounters we collect key information that connects and reach agreements on the expectations of people with the opportunities that exist in the workplace, because gradually, business organizations have found more reasons to promote inclusion and have been surprised with the outstanding results of incorporating people with special abilities into their teams.

In the region, the commitment to inclusion has been promoted by different social and economic sectors which have formed working groups and generated proposals to advance from different approaches, in this work they have obtained data and figures that allow interested organizations to access to inputs to achieve greater relevance and efficiency in the interventions, so that efforts are not duplicated and activities complement each other: thus our beneficiaries gain more

During this task we have met wonderful people in each of the places we have visited and we are sure that it will continue to be so in those that we have yet to find, there will be thousands of experiences to tell that we will continue to build together, because -thanks to the trust that hundreds of people like you have had in this process-, we have dared to imagine a world where hearing disabilities does not represent any obstacle.

For the second semester of 2019 we will take to the action all these learnings with training pilots that will involve the most outstanding findings and we will seek to connect with elements, tools and new links to know the impact of our actions. We are changing the lives of people with the help of technology.
