Access to livelihood project

Accenture is a leading Information Technology company that has been at the forefront of promoting employment for persons with disabilities. Since ….., the company has supported LCNP to carry out the Access to Livelihood Project through which the Livelihood Resource Centre in Nagapattinam was set up. Through the years, this project has reached out to thousands of people and provided them with vocational training and support services. One of the main successes has been our ability to constantly reach out to employers and sensitise them about the employment for persons with disabilities and to remove stigma and misconceptions. We have been able to network with various NGOs and community based organisations to idenitify persons who were trained and placed in wage employment in the private sector or supported to begin self employment ventures.
