There are over 21 million persons with disability in India, which constitutes more than 2% of the population. While there is an increasing awareness of the necessity to create livelihood opportunities for youth with disabilities, many barriers remain, such as discrimination in the process of employment, negative attitudes towards capacity of persons with disabilities or lack of mentoring and ongoing support in their livelihood options.The employment rate for persons with disabilities is estimated to be half the one of the rest of the population.
We create inclusive livelihood opportunities for youth with disability in the Delhi- National Capital Region.
OUR ACTION AND IMPACT
We recognise that people with any disability have a right to all kinds of work on an equal basis as others, in both public and private sectors. We support their choice of work in an open, inclusive, non-discriminatory and accessible work environment.
