Education

About 95% of children with disabilities are not going to schools.Social stigma, bullying, lack of depth and understanding of what they require for formal education at schools lead to them being isolated, lonely and socially engaged.

NOWPDP provides special and inclusive education to children with disabilities equipping them such that they can eventually join the mainstream society through:

  • The Inclusion Academy (TIA)
  • Moriro Markaz
I was always bullied by the other students for my hearing and speech disability at my village school. But then I joined Moriro Markaz and I can’t remember the last time I was so happy. My mom is so amused because I don’t want to even miss one day of school which I usually tried to before. I have made nice friends who help me and don’t laugh at me. I hope every child like me with a disability has friends and a school like this

Skill Development

Persons with disabilities have always faced a lack of educational and economic opportunities that pushes them further back while others move forward. However, vocational training or hunar can boost persons with disabilities’ chance of employment.

NOWPDP provides skills development training to persons with disabilities through the NOWPDP Training Center (NTC) to ensure persons with disabilities would obtain Hunar that would propel them towards employment. NOWPDP Training Centers are scattered across Pakistan in the cities of Karachi, Islamabad and Sujawal. NOWPDP offers 23 different vocational trainings to persons with disabilities. Graphic designing, computer operator, receptionist, mobile repairing, and web development are a few examples:

  • Computer operations

NOWPDP and GIZ

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) through its Technical and Vocational Education and Training Sector Support Programme (TVETSSP) has enabled NOWPDP to train 150 persons with disabilities through its vocational training center during its 2 year long tenure in the trades of Computer Operator and Call Center. Since 2019, GIZ has supported NOWPDP in ensuring persons with disabilities are provided with economic empowerment through employment opportunities. To date 90 Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) have been successfully employed at various partner organizations through industrial collaborations.

I wasn’t born blind. There was a phase in my life where I could still see. Losing my sight and going through this change has been the hardest because my whole worldview changed.
For me, it was the hardest to continue my education. I honestly didn’t have any idea how I could cope. I had to change my school but I still continued my education and completed my MBA a while back. But I still didn’t have any direction until I then joined NOWPDP’s Call Center training. With all the guidance I received in the training, I discovered a newfound passion to work in a call center. After the completion of my training I got a job at HRSG and I have never been happier!
