Innovative Practice 2021 on Inclusive Employment and ICT
Young people trained as Disability Inclusion Facilitators to motivate employers
Light for the World, the global disability and development NGO, has developed the ‘Make 12.4% Work-Initiative’ for Uganda that encourages member organizations to open employment opportunities and livelihood programmes for persons with disabilities. The initiative is led by young Disability Inclusion Facilitators, who train these organizations in inclusion. From 2018 to 2020, 124 organizations have become members, and 5,700 people have been included in the livelihood programmes.
“It’s exhilarating each time I realize my message is bringing about positive change.”
