During the initial years of United Way Chennai, the organization facilitated programmes that offered skill-based training to people with disabilities and helped to identify relevant employment opportunities for them in the corporate sector, both in public and private organizations. This initiative was taken up to ensure diversity and inclusion in the corporate sector.
Currently, we are focussing on enabling better livelihoods for people with disabilities. Be it through offering educational scholarships to people with multiple disabilities or via projects like setting up petty shops for small business to be run by people with disabilities.
Our most recent project that is underway is in partnership with TNDFC, with support from Wells Fargo.
