Enable the disabled programme

The Management Club, operating under the auspices of The Chartered Management Institute-UK, Sri Lanka Branch initiated a noteworthy national programme under its arm of Corporate Social Responsibility in the November 2002 to make Sri Lanka a disabled-friendly nation by creating awareness of the plight of the disabled, now amounting to over 1.7 million citizens of Sri Lanka and to facilitate the provision of equal opportunities for the disabled.

Enable the Disabled, or ETD as it is popularly known is partnered not only by the members of corporate entities, but also by the Government, the NGO and INGO sectors and concerned and well meaning public and private sector individuals and organizations.

The programme is divided into two categories -`A0 empowering the disabled and changing the attitude towards the disabled. Under the category of empowering the disabled ETD has identified the need for finding suitable employment for persons with disabilities most of whom are employable in many areas. This plan of action has been going on for the last two years and there are few disabled candidates who have been already employed through this programme of ETD.

In order further broad base this activity ETD has appointed a dedicated position to oversee and plan out a stratergy as Director employment who is a member of the EXCO fo ETD. The first task is to establish a DATA BASE of employable disabled candidates, after which the candidates will be categorized into different fields depending on their disability / skills and educational levels.

Thereafter ETD will work very closely with many potential corporate sector employers and encourage them to employ a certain percentage of disabled candidates .

ETD is now calling applications from employable disabled Candidates to set up the DATA BASE and any one could send the applications to the below address.
