Mainstreaming the Differently-Abled 3 (Annual Report 2009-10)
Bridging possibilities – career training for the differently-abled
Enrich the Life of the Differently-Abled Through Development of Communication and Livelihood Skills
This unique project to support livelihood generation for the differently-abled, with the support of Huawei Technologies, China, has successfully completed its first year. It has now entered second year. The three year project aims at imparting vocational training in specific job-oriented courses to 50 young people from underprivileged areas of south Delhi. In the first year, 15 beneficiaries have successfully completed their training. 8 completed the Computer Course, 4 completed the Dress Making course and 3 completed the Beauty Culture course. 14 new students have already been enrolled for the second batch.
- The programme motivated two beneficiaries, Sapna and Deepmala, to completing schooling from the NIOS.
- When Sapna found placement in a company as a computer data operator, her instructors were among the first people she called to share her joy at the success of their joint effort.
- Deepalaya has maintained an ongoing contact with the first batch of beneficiaries through regular counselling. A workshop on career counselling and placements was held in February 2010 to facilitate students in continuing their education as well as careers pursuing.
- Beneficiaries of the dress-designing programme for the first year are now employed at export houses and tailoring shops. Beauty Culture certificate holders are either employed by parlours, or are working as free-lancers, earning as much as ` 5000 for a day during the festive/wedding season.
