The core program of CDT, the Livelihood Training Program encourages self-reliance among the disabled and helps them counter the stigma associated with their disabilities through meaningful employment. Funded entirely through charitable donations, the program is targeted at individuals between the ages of 19 and 35 with 40% or more disability. Donations made to our NGO go towards candidate identification and assessment, moves on to IT and Soft Skill Training and is followed by Placement and Post-Placement Support.
To achieve its goals both internal and donor specified, CDT leans heavily on its associations with various NGOs, Clubs and Government Offices to reach out to PWDs in and around Bangalore, Kolar, Mysore, Tumkur and other parts of India. As of this year, CDT has successfully placed 2,545 candidates from a total batch of 3,807 through partnerships with companies like IBM, Accenture, Infosys, CapGemini, Concentrix, Coffee Day Enterprises, Aegis, Axa, First American India, and over 700 other companies.
