In the past two years we have support 280 persons with a disability. They have undergone vocational and soft skills training and 120 have been employed and 70 are operating their own businesses. These 190 people are now able to support their families.
Due to the corona regulations some have lost their jobs. Currently, 90 recipients are awaiting employment opportunities in a disability employment portal.
Cost effectiveness: on average €52 per recipient (including overhead costs).
Hudson Karume is the CEO of Vision of the Blind, and an experienced expert, being visually impaired himself. Two other staff members are volunteering at Vision of the Blind. All have excellent academic qualifications and experience in managing projects for people with a disability.
Staff have undergone various training, like a training of trainees in understanding disability and human rights, civic education and good governance, economic empowerment and corporate governance.
Through the organizational structure, sound management, and project staff qualifications, we have been able to implement all our projects to the satisfaction of recipients, partners and stakeholders.
