Thanks for your comments, we are happy to work together going forward

You are welcome Lesa,

I forgot to mention that the reason we are also reaching out to employers and supporting them,we realized that majority of them do not understand where to start from if they are faced with a prospective employee who has a disability and instead of getting embarrassed,they would rather just leave them meaning that a lot of people apply for jobs and when they show up and it is found that they have a disability,they automatically get disqualified because the employer doesnt understand how to deal with them. It is therefore important to walk them through the process making them understand various types of disabilities to become confident leading to employment of disabled people

Thanks for your insight Mildred and for gracing one of our events,to ensure that this happens,we want to organize an employers meeting within this year to bring together all employers to share and support one another on how to become disability-inclusive at their work place.
If you have further advice on how we should go about this,we will appreciate to include your ideas and possibly invite you to come and speak during the event.
