Impact and growth
Majidah connects all players in the disability training and employment ecosystem, so they can better collaborate together and provide better services to people with disabilities. The platform gives active employers access to a pool of profiles and matches of candidates with disabilities. Additionally, Majidah provides training providers and NGOs access to a large pool of motivated young adults with disabilities to join their programs.
During the first year, the platform had:
- 15,000 persons with disabilities
- 200 employers
- 500 job vacancies
- 120 training providers
- and 470 training opportunities in total
In the long run, the aim is to increase these numbers subsequently with on–site activities, digital marketing, events and media coverage.
It is the first digital network connecting and enabling communication between young adults with disabilities and all stakeholders in the training and employment ecosystem but also providing access to online training material to integrate them fully into the open labour market.
The platform is designed to support people with disabilities seeking training and work, employers seeking employment with persons with disabilities
