Project by US Embassy in partnership of PUAN in District Shaheed Benazir Abad
(Period: 01st August 2015 – 31st October 2015)
NDF launched the project “ To promote learning of basic English Language, Basic Computer Knowledge to access internet among persons with disabilities” with PUAN member Mr. Abid Lashari under ASG (Alumni Small Grants) supported by US EMBASSY in partnership with the Pakistan US.
Persons with Disabilities are not self sufficient to make choices of their career. There is dire need to develop skills of learning Basic English & Basic Computer Knowledge. I intend to develop the capacities of 15 persons with disabilities in terms of learning of English Language & Basic Computer Knowledge to access internet. Through this project 15 persons with disabilities will get benefit to improve English Language & Computer skills in both batches of 03 months each. They can easily find suitable opportunity to build up career. I have established Computer Lab & Hall for English Language Classes in the premises of NDF office Nawabshah.
People with disabilities have potential to do work, they have lots of skills & well educated but due to limited access of education & environment they lack English Language & Computer Skills. This opportunity will bring new window of learning under PUAN Small Grants Programme to empower their vision & to develop motivation to do work, for their self-sufficiency.
