What problem does your idea solve?

Addressing the challenges of social inclusion for the disabled. And the how the stigma of productivity can be addressed. To negate the idea of privilege as facilitator, though it helps but it’s the internal struggle and sheer will of the champions that have enabled them to succeed despite all odds. The INIT utilizing its member network would disseminate and advocate the equality of right to work for everyone using the power of ICTs.

Explain your idea

It is a two phase project by Inter Islamic Network on Information Technology (INIT), The first phase entails an online portal called ‘Quqnas’ meaning the Phoenix in Urdu including video documentaries of disabled champions linked to a dedicated YouTube channel , information notes for employers , suggestions forum , training notes on effective integration for organizational trainers , endorsements from celebrities and renowned advocates of inclusion , works of social scientists in the area of inclusion , Government officials , Private Sector representatives , and documentaries on disabled champions. The documentaries of the disabled would be created by a dedicated creative team chosen by INIT, and would be in the form of mini-series hosted on the dedicated YouTube channel and social media accounts. The INIT utilizing its network across the governmental and private sector organizations would launch an awareness and advocacy drive via integration of the E-portal on INIT’s website , IT ministry website for the Government of Pakistan alongside all major private sector organizations. The E-portal is aimed at both employers and employees to learn from the experience of others and to develop effective integration policy into their workforce.
