Innovative Practice 2021 on Inclusive Employment and ICT
NGO federation training and placing young adults with intellectual disabilities
Inclusion Mauritius is a federation of 13 NGOs promoting the social and professional inclusion of persons with intellectual disabilities in Mauritius. Through its supported employment and training programme, and supported by companies, it ensures the successful hiring of candidates and an almost 100 per cent retention rate. Between 2018 and 2020, Inclusion Mauritius trained 162 young adults with intellectual disabilities, of whom almost 50 have found employment in the open labour market.
“Following the training, I now work as a full-time sales assistant and help my parents financially.”
