The Importance of Skills Training for Disabled

The importance of skills training for disabled is paramount. These people face many barriers in training and education. They are deprived of access to many necccessary skills for employment.

Disabled people face discrimination worldwide. They also face barriers to be able to seek employment. Disabled people miss out on opportunities due to societies ignorance and lack of education when it comes to disabilities.

The Key to success for people with disabilities is training. Action4 the blind and disabled children strives to improve the lives of youth with disabilities through advanced computer skills training. This will ultimately open many doors for employment for people with disabilities. Qualified instructors and professional training is essential for a good qualification- which is what we offer.

Just as non-disabled people need skills to get a job, so do people with disabilities. It isn’t an easy road for these people as they have many obstacles, the worst being discrimination. Children with disabilities have a lack of basic education, so they become unqualified for further education and skills training.

At Action we empower the youth with disabilities through skills and vocational training. We understand their shortcomings and we take Action against discrimination. We want to remove the negative feelings of low confidence and depression in the disabled community. Skills training involves encouragement and a mindset change for all involved.

By offering training and learnerships, we help to improve peoples ability to be able to look for work and go for interviews with confidence.

People with physical disabilities crave employment and the right to live independently, just as everyone else does. Training is vital for employment and independence in society. Training gives people with disabilities the skills needed for self-employment too.
