Tuesday, 18th April 2017: In an attempt to create opportunities to economically empower persons with disabilities, Planet N Group and NOWPDP, partnered to fund 10 business ideas. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Mr. Amin Hashwani, President NOWPDP and Mr. Nadeem Hussain, Founder and Coach at Planet N Group of Companies at a private ceremony.
“Pakistan has a very young population and soon we will run out of jobs and will have to do something ourselves. I am very proud to announce that Planet N Group, will support NOWPDP in setting up an incubation center and will provide seed funding for 10 business ideas by persons with disabilities”, remarked Mr. Nadeem Hussain, who had agreed to the idea at a motivational session he delivered for persons with disabilities earlier in February this year at the NOWPDP office.
Mr. Amin Hashwani, President NOWPDP said, “Perceptions need be revised and success stories established so sympathy becomes empathy and apathy becomes social action. We are proud to have Planet N Group as our strategic partner for this initiative and look forward to having the first batch of entrepreneurs with disabilities set an example.”
