What problem does your idea solve?

Disabled people are hard to connect and reach. There is social stigma in disabled community that employment opportunities aren't for them and they don't try to find jobs. Similarly, many employers want to hire people from disabled community in many desciplines - but there is no way for employers to connect and reach them.

Explain your idea

The idea is simple. The disabled people come online, create their profile and specify the following - Qualification - Experience - Skills - Their disability ( we categorize the specific disability ) - Problems they face carrying out the work. - Problems they face in traveling. - Their work preferences ( location, type of work ) Once they fill their profile, our team calls them and help them improve their profile. We use machine learning algos to help them improve their profiles for better job search and also human intervention to suggest changes and properly categorize their profiles. Once we have profiles of users - we reach to employers - and match employer needs with the people from disabled community. We already have a network of 3,000 profiles of employers and have worked with them how and in what depts are suitable for hiring disabled people.

Who benefits?

10% of the population in Pakistan (18 million) have some kind of disability. Disabled community. We want to reach 10% of the disabled community. In next 5 years we aim to employ 100,000 disabled people with our network of employers.

How is your idea unique?

Plus we already have worked with 30,000 employers that use our services for hiring talent fro asian region. 10% of our employers are ready to hire people from disabled community. These employers need a connection and we have passion and right experience to connect disabled people with jobs.
