Nai Subah Foundation, Shaurya Foundation roll out assisted employment program for neurodiverse individuals
New Delhi — Nai Subah Foundation which works towards the creation of opportunities for the marginalised sections of society Tuesday announced its collaboration with Shaurya Foundation Trust, a non-profit organisation providing balanced education with functional academics, athletics, arts, and service for persons with special needs.
In a bid to generate sustainable employment for young neurodiverse individuals, both the organisations along with Anandkand Paramount Products, an upcoming paint ancillary unit based in Faridabad have rolled out an assisted employment program called 'Packaging Panthers'.
Anandkand Paramount will outsource semi-skilled packaging and production work to select individuals from Shaurya Foundation Trust at its Palwal site. Based on the success of the pilot program, the model will scale up and more employment opportunities will be created.
“There is a fundamental need to tap into the talented neurodiverse workforce and provide them with progressive employment opportunities utilising their unique skill sets and capabilities. Through our initiative with Shaurya Foundation and Anandkand Paramount Products, we would not only be able to generate uplifting employment opportunities for young neurodiverse individuals but will also be able to enhance their income generation capability, self-esteem, and independence,” said Nai Subah Foundation Founder Tarini Malhotra.
“Shaurya Foundation works to strengthen and empower persons with intellectual disability. We have created a unique and innovative employment model providing an in-house working environment for them. “Packaging Panthers” unit for packaging and production has been set up to enable them to work and earn in a supported environment without compromising on quality and standard”, said Shaurya Foundation Trust Founder andChairman Ravi Gupta.
“It gives me a great sense of satisfaction to have such special individuals working and contributing to our business while building their own experience and careers. With the help of Nai Subah Foundation, we are able to engage a special community which usually doesn’t get any opportunity to generate income and lead enriched lives,” Anandkand Paramount Products Managing Director Ayush Banga said.
