More than 70% of this youth are excluded from mainstream education and employment processes are economically dependent. Even though the persons with disability constitute a significant percentage of the population, their needs for meaningful employment largely remain unfulfilled. The number of persons with disability applying for these jobs is extremely low on account of accessibility, facilitation, awareness, training and lack of self-confidence.


The project will provide horticulture skilling/training for 100 youth with disability from rural areas across Karnataka. It is a response to several key issues revolving around people with disability, particularly in rural Karnataka. Exclusion, social stigma, lack of access to education and livelihood opportunities, present a huge barrier to the integration of People with disabilities (PwDs) into the mainstream.
