Hyderabad: Youth4jobs, an NGO founded in 2012 is providing training to the differently abled. The NGO is imparting special training to them to acquire skills which are useful for the students to gain employment.
On Wednesday, the alumni of the organisation conducted Divyanga Udyogothsavam to share their experiences, as they had struggled initially to get jobs before they got trained by the NGO.
As part of the event, ‘College Connect’ was launched with an aim to link differently abled students of Colleges with employment. The pilot project is being implemented in the state with the TASK (Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge).
While addressing the large gathering, Fasiuddin appreciated the efforts of the NGO. He appealed the people to take the differently abled as inspiration, who are fighting hard in spite of disability. The Deputy Mayor said the Telangana government has increased the pension of the differently abled more than three-folds.

The organization has 22 centres across India, including two in Telangana. The NGO so far has given training to 11,500 students of which 60 per cent are placed in reputed industries.
