Y4J launched two reports on industries which have high potential to hire youth with disabilities. Youth4Jobs latest report was “Integrating Persons with Disabilities in The Hospitality and Quick Service Restaurant Sector”, capturing live case studies and demonstrating how others could also enable inclusion of PwDs in the hospitality sector.
The Virtual Launch Event conducted on 2nd December, was timely as it coincided with the International Disability Day.
The Chief Guest was, Shri. Praveen Kumar, IAS – Secretary of the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship who remarked that such reports were the need of the day and would encourage others to hire the talent pool of PwDs.
