As documented by several studies working age persons with disabilities experience significantly lower employment rates and much higher unemployment rates than persons without disabilities.
Despite their disabilities, people often have abilities that they do not dare to share due to various reasons.
Our mission is to help promote their development, to direct their ideas towards commercialization!
Thus, the main goal is to improve the necessary skills of people with disabilities for new career opportunities and to improve their communication with all types of consumers.
The following activities are planned to achieve the goal:
• Seminars on self-employment and microfinance;
• Branches of workshops (painting, jewelry, knitting, cooking etc.);
• Web-platform for job seekers with disabilities, employers and partners;
• Cooperation between people with disabilities in LV and EE (meetings, exchange of experience).
