As a data and technology expert, I want to use technology and data to increase access to decent jobs for people with disabilities by solving challenges they face while searching for or starting jobs.

Foster economic empowerment of youth
Our online platform consists of a website and mobile services, as well as software that supports transcription services for deaf youth. Our solution includes capacity building for disabled youth on their disability rights, and for employers on their responsibilities in inclusive employment. We will improve youths’ employability by providing career guidance and practice interviews for graduates and finalists. We will increase job accessibility by adopting international standards to improve accessibility for people with visual or hearing impairments. The website will also have a section for whistleblowing to boost intervention from the government and other stakeholders.
