Institution and Capacity Building

Institution and Capacity Building

Placements in real job situations and training on site led to successful employment opportunities both in the community and at People First Foundation. Our programs focuses on creating an enabling environment through awareness raising, information dissemination, capacity building and advocacy for an inclusive society for people with disability where there is no exclusion, exploitation or stigmatization of persons with disabilities. 

People First Foundation is working towards training them and facilitating their employment. To work towards creating awareness and taking initiatives for proper wages, develop well equipped and accessible work-place environment, and work to finish discrimination at the workplace along with addressing greater issues such as the absence of substantial data based information regarding the various job opportunities that could be made available to people of disability particularly in rural areas.

The focus of the rural program is to facilitate the creation of a responsive community, which fulfills the needs of people with disability. This includes collaborative efforts with persons with disability, families, local leadership, policy makers and the larger society; capacity building of volunteers, professionals and institutions from the Health, Education, Employment and other sectors; formation of advocacy and support groups at the village, block and district level. Focusing on disability, poverty and gender issues, the programme works towards convergence of services that benefit all people in the community. These activities give opportunities for capacity building in communication, relationship building, problem solving and other life skills.
