Skill development training to Adults with Intellectual disabilities for Inclusion in open Wage employment
Seva-in-Action (SiA) is a voluntary organisation founded in 1985, with the goal to empower persons & families with disabilities and promote inclusion and ensure their human rights through Community Based Rehabilitation & Inclusive Education. It cradles the vision of developing egalitarian society. SiA started with the skill development and livelihood program in urban area in 2010 when the adults with intellectual disabilities were out from special schools and the parents did not know how to help them in getting open wage employment or engage them with meaningful livelihood opportunities.
Training & Employment is most important because having a skills & job enhances social status and provides wages. It increases integration of contacts and opportunities for other integrated activities. Adult with Disabilities will become productive members in the family and it increases their self esteem & promotes individual growth. People with intellectual disabilities should be taught skills in the environment in which they are going to be used i.e. on the job.
In this context, SiA is looking for adult with disabilities who required skill training and placement in the areas of Retail, Hospitality and Computer. Subsequently, the Adults are placed in the suitable training for the placement. SiA will assist in the initial stages of training.
