Digiabled is an initiative to help “Differently Abled” youths to become Self-Dependent. Digiabled means Digitally enabling differently abled youths. As per 2011 census in India, about 2.21% of the total population are disabled or have some deformity. Sec2(i) of the Persons with Disability Act, 1995 defines Disability in 7 major categories. In India, low literacy, fewer jobs and widespread social stigma make disabled people among the most excluded. Children with disabilities are less likely to be employed and families with a disabled member are often worse off than average.
Edu Ventures stood up for Persons with Disability and initiated Digiabled. We train disabled youths in Basic electronic skills. These youths then work in SHGs and assemble electronic items like LED Bulbs, Power Banks, Solar Lamps etc. The idea is to make them self-employed in their village or block level. Digiabled.com is working as a platform for PwDs to conquer their restrictions and come into mainstream society. Our Digiabled associates are working in various locations of Chhattisgarh. Disabled youths from remote locations like Jashpur, Sukma are currently working as Digiabled Associates.
