Activities of Discover A New Dawn (DAND)
DAND ventures into a field study to examine existing scopes for better employment opportunities for disabled and accordingly strategies on building up mechanisms accessible to beneficiaries seeking employment. We have surveyed people with disabilities in Kolkata and outskirts comprising mostly Visually Impaired and Locomotor disabled (Orthopedically Handicapped).
An initiative for those who tend to underestimate their capability to do something, owing to their physical disability. It works as an inspiration for those who consider themselves incompetent to achieve their desired goal. On many instances virtually loosing the zeal to strive and feel comfortable by taking refuge in the home on the ploy of being physically disabled. Now, this is exactly where our work starts.
DAND provides full Career Guidance to people with various physical disabilities. We thoroughly support them in taking right career decision, depending upon their marks, interests and aptitude and subsequently conduct them for a better existence.
Discover A New Dawn (DAND) organizes Multi-facets Interactive Counselling Programs. These workshops are based on different important aspects of life of a person with disability viz. Legal Awareness, Education, Employment & Vocational, Social Issues and so on… The topic of discussion of all the sessions is mainly focused on Employment and Livelihood.
DAND provides guidance on Spoken English & Personality Development at free of cost. At present some disabled youth are taking this support. We are eager to expand and establish various types of skill development training programs for different types of people with disabilities.
