Skills development/training programs
At Society for Special Persons we believe that PWDs are not to be thought of as individuals missing intellectual or skills or talent. They are but as talented as able humans, they are in fact differently able.SSP has always aimed for the empowerment of PWDs by giving them right-based awareness and has advocated for the rights of PWDs to the optimal potential to equip PWDs with not only life-skills but also skills to that would enable them to earn their own livelihood, become independent and become included in the social model, national economy, public policy, participation in democracy and eventually the constitution.
SSP has initiated various training programs for PWDs that enable them to lean craftsmanship and use their training, improving the character of their lives by feeling entitled to being productive, being able and becoming effective citizens.Ace of the highlight examples of SSPs empowering skills development programs is the institution of the Customized wheel chair unit, Pakistan (Link to be inserted that takes visitors on the customized wheelchair unit page) the only wheelchair making unit of its sort that makes customized wheelchairs based on the disability of PWDs.The employees working at PCWU are PWDs themselves and hold pride in their profession that is becoming a proponent in mobilizing their community.
Another one of SSPs successful skills development programs is the formation of Self-Help Groups of Women with Disabilities (Link to WWDs page, redirecting visitors to their page) in which WWDs are provided leadership trainings for a specific duration in the form of workshops, thus passing on these women hands on experience about leading a group of women like themselves, finally getting a sustainable unit.Self-Help Groups provide a comfort zone for WWDs where they can learn from people belonging to their own community without hesitation. These trainings challenges WWDs at the time by inspiring them to step outside of their homes and research the possibilities of being differently able.
SSP’sInclusiveVocational Training Center is providing PWDs with valuable skills such as computer skills, hand embroidery, sewing, makeup courses. In order to effectively mobilize PWDs travel to and from the vocational center, SSP provides free pick and drop service to them in an accessible van, so that PWDs can conveniently carry their wheelchairs with them. SSP has successfully empowered PWDs by giving them the opportunity to learn despite their disabilities and giving them confidence to make a living for themselves with honor.
