To increase job readiness and opportunity for persons with disabilities, Accenture has awarded a series of grants worth INR 48 million to its non-profit partners, Dr. Reddy’s Foundation, Anudip Foundation and EnAble India.

The grants – a part of Accenture’s Skills to Succeed global corporate citizenship initiative which aims to equip 3 million with job skills by 2020 – will enhance programs that provide job skills to persons with disabilities in India and connect them to open positions. Specifically, the grants will support:

Dr. Reddy’s Foundation’s GROW skilling program for persons across India with locomotor disabilities and hearing impairment; the Anudip Foundation’s Specially Abled Vocational Education (SAVE) program in West Bengal and Odisha, tailored to the physically and visually challenged and EnAble India in scaling its innovative Namma Vaani system which, through interactive voice response, uses mobile phones to create an interactive, inclusive social platform to create a network for persons with disabilities.
