NOWPDP launched a Disability Services Directory that categorizes services provided by organizations working for the differently-abled. NOWPDP’s network of 160 organizations across Pakistan made the collection of significant amount of information possible.
The directory includes sections for
- Special Education (Government)
- Special Education (Private)
- Cinemas, Museums, etc.
- Government Services
The information is accessible over an interactive website – allowing users to access information, contribute new information and updating existing databanks. NOWPDP aims to provide easy access of this information to people with special abilities, CSOs, NGOs and DPOs, identifying gaps in the products/services provided to the targeted community; and moreover, provide the same services through SMS to reach areas where internet facility is not yet available/accessed.
