Dharwad LEADers Help Employ 8 Disabled People

Posted on Monday, February 03, 2014 by LEAD

LEADer Renuka Chandrashekhar from SDMCET, Dharwad, wanted to do something to give back to society.  As part of LEAD, she and some other students had visited Samarthanam Trust, an NGO that helps physically disabled people achieve their goals.  After visiting the NGO with other LEAD students for Teachers Day, Renuka felt inspired by the work of the NGO and wanted to help them more. After communicating with Samathanam Trust, Renuka learned that many of the disabled people get rejected from placement programs because they do not have the required soft skills.  So, Renuka gathered two other LEADers to provide soft skills training in English as well as Hindi.  For one month, the LEADers conducted training courses covering the topics of writing, reading and speaking two hours every day for one month. Furthermore, Renuka contacted First Source Solutions, a Bangalore based call center company that works for Vodafone and Airtel.  The LEADers shortlisted 15 of the students they had been training, and 8 of those students were successfully placed with First Source Solutions.
