Sightsavers and JSLPS launch the ‘Disability Employability’ campaign


More than 12 million Indians stay in absolute darkness due to a lack of medical awareness.

But many NGOs and other organizations are working very hard to solve this problem and include people with disabilities into the mainstream population.

These people are often discriminated against in many areas of their social lives. So, to make them feel included we need to create equal opportunities for them.

Sightsavers India is a development organization that works to protect the eyesight and the rights of people with disabilities. It has launched the “Disability Employability Campaign” in Jharkhand. The campaign was launched in partnership with the Jharkhand State Livelihood Promotion Society (JSLPS).

This marketing campaign was aimed for the aid of using Sightsavers and JSLPS and to create recognition about incapacity and sell identical employment possibilities for men and women with disabilities in personal zone organizations throughout India.

Regardless of the criminal mandates, maximum corporations keep away from recruiting human beings with disabilities because of a poor outlook and faulty assumptions.

With the proper recognition, experiences, mindfulness, and display positivity, employers can apprehend that making an inclusive running surrounding is useful for each business enterprise and the person with disabilities.

According to Mr. RN Mohanty, Sightsavers India’s CEO, People with disabilities still face many barriers when it comes to fair and equitable participation in the workplace. Barriers to employment can be overcome.

Sightsavers India, through its Social Inclusion Program, has set itself the goal of enhancing employability as an integral part of the economic empowerment of people with disabilities, involving employers, and ensuring that people with disabilities lead an independent and dignified life.

Ms. Nancy Sahay, (CEO, Jharkhand State Livelihood Promotion Society) said that Ensuring an inclusive work culture is essential for the integration of people with disabilities in the workplace.

Businesses have the potential to help people with disabilities find work. They can get started and with their help, they can make a huge difference in the lives of people with disabilities.

Sightsavers launched the ‘A manual, Pathways to Inclusive Employment – The Employer’s Guide’- to encourage inclusive practices by private companies. Disabled people have skills and talents that need to be recognized. This is only possible when they are given a fair opportunity to compete.

The Sightsavers is working to fulfill this very objective.
