In the Mal­dives, the state-owned Fe­naka Cor­po­ra­tion has pro­vided em­ploy­ment to 100 per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties at its re­gional pow­er­houses and branches in the atolls. Be­fore hir­ing, the cor­po­ra­tion con­ducted a skills au­dit across the coun­try to de­ter­mine the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of the dif­fer­ently-abled re­sources, as well as the oc­cu­pa­tional tasks that they can eas­ily per­form at the work­place. Un­der the pro­gramme, on-the-job train­ing and op­por­tu­ni­ties for ca­reer ad­vance­ment will also be of­fered to dis­abled per­sons in col­lab­o­ra­tion with state in­sti­tu­tions. The Fe­naka Cor­po­ra­tion pro­vides elec­tric­ity ser­vices to some 152 is­lands out of 187 in­hab­ited is­lands in the Mal­dives.
