2

Employers in both public  and private  sectors have been  urge to measure  the productivity  of job seekers with impartiality regardless of their physical challenges.

Speaking at the unveiling  of the  blueprint in building a diverse  and inclusive  workforce  between Standard Chartered and  Sight Savers limited, the court of Appeal Judge Dr. K. Imaana Laibuta said there are many people living with disabilities with requisite  expertise  to contribute to the profit of the organizations and the economy  of the country.

“I urge employers to measure the productivity of persons living with disabilities in the same manner they do for the opposite. We have many high performers who are ready to contribute to the success of an organization,” said Hon. Laibuta

To address the perennial suitability  questions  on persons  with disabilities, the veteran legal practitioner further  asked  the relevant  stakeholders  to first  invest in quality  education  and training  to equip the physically  challenged  with skill that enables  them to compete with  those living  a normal  life  on a level ground.

“To address employability for persons living with disabilities, we need to first address the matter of access to quality education and training for them,” Laibuta added.

In compliance  with the United Nations  Sustainable Development  Goals Dr. Sarah Mwikali,  the co-founder of Gifted Community Centre based in Kibera  mentioned  that effective inclusion  must look beyond integration to  creating an all-inclusive  environment by furnishing the workspaces with assistive  devices.

“Inclusion of persons living with disabilities goes beyond simply integrating them into workforces – it means creating an environment for them to contribute and flourish,” Mwikali stated.

To bridge the gap between  the disabled  persons  and the job market  the  Frederick  Ooko the founder  of the  Riziki source centre, said that the potential  employers  looking  for persons with  disabilities  reach out for them for competent workforce  through 0720786218.
