Women and girls with disabilities experience “Double Discrimination,” which includes the gender-based and disability-based discrimination and marginalization. As a result, women with disabilities fare poorly on every human development indicator. Education and employment levels are lower than men with disabilities
They are left out of all gender programs and policies and little work is done in this field of livelihoods for young women with disabilities
What we do:
We strive to get a minimum 30% women participation in all our trainings. Special emphasis is put in our advocacy campaigns to change prevailing perceptions and make people understand that women with disabilities can be productive members of society.
During Covid,Youth4Jobs’ afternoon batch Online Trainings saw more women with disabilities, even young widows, login from across country. Our trainings include 21st century skills for aspiration girls who are linked to organised sector jobs. Young women with less education, widows are either linked to local jobs or entrepreneurial training with financial support
Mothers were our brand ambassadors since every mother wants a better life for their daughters .
A survey done by Mckinsey volunteers showed the following impact after young women were trained and linked to resilient livelihoods
