Purple Fest Launch Marks a Milestone in the Pursuit of Inclusive Employment Opportunities

New Delhi: In a pioneering collaboration, the Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (DEPwD) has joined forces with Enable India to introduce a groundbreaking 70-hour interactive Employability Skills course specifically designed for Persons with Disabilities (PwDs). Shaped under the visionary guidance of Secretary, DEPwD, Shri. Rajesh Aggarwal, this transformative course aims to revolutionize access to gainful employment opportunities for PwDs.

The grand launch of this innovative course took place at the Purple Fest, an event heralding a promising and brighter future for individuals with disabilities. The inauguration ceremony was a testament to the commitment to creating an inclusive and empowered society that recognizes and harnesses the potential of every individual.

In addition to the launch of the Employability Skills course, the National Council for Vocational Education and Training, in collaboration with the Department for Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities, unveiled comprehensive Guidelines for Accessibility Standards. These guidelines, meticulously tailored for both physical and digital skill training infrastructure, serve as a beacon of inclusivity for individuals with diverse disabilities. This revolutionary step ensures the adoption of standards nationwide by all government-associated skill training organizations, fostering a more accessible environment for everyone.

The culmination of these efforts was marked by a special event at the main hall of Kala Academy, where Shri Subhas Phal Dessai and Shri Rajesh Aggarwal officially launched these transformative initiatives. This event not only symbolized a milestone but also represented a significant stride towards building a more accessible and inclusive future for all.

The impact of these initiatives promises to create lasting changes in the landscape of employability and accessibility for Persons with Disabilities across the nation. By providing specialized skill training and establishing inclusive standards, the collaborative efforts of DEPwD and Enable India aim to break barriers and pave the way for a more equitable and empowered society.
