Inclusion for All
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.
