How are we empowering YWIDD in 2020? Anapendeza is super excited to announce our WEwork Accelerator. The accelerator will have two tracks:
Digital skills with a focus on online jobs, typing, transcription, data entry.
Apprenticeship skills where we shall focus on Knitting, Photography, and Art.
We will run the accelerator for 6 months and we shall have 15 – 20 Youth with Intellectual Disabilities and Developmental participating in each Cohort.
We have partnered with Special Olympics, Photo start Kenya and Elite transcription to ensure the project is a success.
At the end of the accelerator, we hope to have developed products/ services that will enable the participant to set up microbusiness so as to earn an income and create employment for other Persons with Intellectual Disabilities.
We are so excited to take you with us through our journey!!
We are excited about the next 6 months, be sure to follow us on our social media, for stories of our heroes and sheroes in the making.
