Overview

Cheshire Livelihood Resource Centre

 

Cheshire Homes India (CHI) Bangalore began its core project Livelihood Resource Centre in 2008. The aim of the project is to provide livelihood opportunities to persons with disabilities from poor economic backgrounds, ensuring equal opportunities in the society.

The objective is met by a process which involves series of steps

  • Registration of persons with disabilities between the age group of 18-35 years
  • Training of the registered candidates on
    • Skill building
    • Sector specific
    • Need based training
  • Placement of PwDs
  • Career guidance workshop as and when needed also at the nodal centres

Apart from working with PwDs, it is really important for us to work with the employers in various aspects for the employability opportunity given to the PwDs to be effective. This involves,

  • Need based sign language training
  • Training of Trainers are being conducted for people who work with PwDs
  • Awareness workshops to know and understand the issues and abilities of PwDs. And it is also undertaken with the media persons.
  • Job Fairs – this bridges the gap between the need of employers and skills available with PwDs
  • Partnering with other likeminded NGOs and Government department
  • Coordinating walk-ins to be held in the organisation, in order to facilitate the PwDs
  • Sensitization workshop on the assistive technologies and accessibility requirements to provide work place solution in order to develop a conducive environment for Pwds to put-in their best at work.
  • Pilot visit to the employer’s work place to ensure that the environment where PwDs are to be placed is conducive
