Winner: Skilling and Livelihood – Established stage
The disabled community in India has very limited platforms where they can explore opportunities for seeking jobs and entrepreneurship in India. The present pandemic has also shown us the vulnerability of the PwD’s in such scenarios and the need for them to become self-reliant. The Portal /App we are developing will be a one-stop solution for all skilling entrepreneurship and employability need.
Divyangjan India is being built as a national platform with first of its kind unique features to create a comprehensive web portal and Mobile APP for last-mile connect.
In the first phase of development, we have chosen to tackle the employability and entrepreneurial issues. The app is planned such that it will also integrate a gig economy model relevant to the PwDs. We plan to make the app completely accessible, multi-lingual and disabled friendly for the target audience. The Divyangjan India app will allow the targeted users to search for jobs from the job postings by empanelled employers, organisation providing relevant skilling courses near them, schemes related to further studies and list the services they can offer and get hired and the service providers who are offering services for the targeted audience. The impact of the portal and APP will be huge as platform will not only provide opportunities to the disabled communities but will open new avenues for them as well as inspire them to aspire.
