Appropriate training and financial support can generate employment for Persons with Disabilities
‘Appropriate training and financial support can generate employment for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs)’, said Dr Tapash Kumar Biswas, Deputy Managing Director of PKSF. As a part of inclusive development programs, PKSF is working to improve the quality of life for the PWDs. Dr Tapash appreciated YPSA, a Partner Organization of PKSF, for implementing the ‘Ensuring a Sustainable Livelihood for People with Disabilities through Inclusive Financing Program’ with the financial and technical support of PKSF. He emphasized expanding the program across the country. He added that there is no alternative to generating employment for these people to ensure sustainable development of Bangladesh and to meet the SDGs.
