Project Awaz: Yaqeeen completes sensitization sessions with service champions at Shell sites

Yaqeeen conducted 15 sensitization sessions with around 281 service champions from 11 Shell sites across Karachi; thus successfully completing the Capacity Building phase of Project Awaz. The sessions took place from 27 July-17 August, 2016 and were aimed at inculcating an enabling environment for the new recruits with hearing impairments at these sites.

Along with a basic disability awareness component, an integral part of the sessions was the sign language training which included basic phrases as well as some 33 Shell-specific words to facilitate interpersonal communication between the existing staff and the new hires with hearing impairments.

NOWPDP looks forward to ensuring placement and sustainable employment of the new recruits at these sites.
