A small ad can make a world of difference. A single ad put up on Namma Vaani to recruit candidates for two data entry companies in Bangalore led to the employment of 27 PwDs. Once the ad was put up, 57 people contacted the recruiter through Namma Vaani. Over half of them were found to be suitable for the job, and 27 of them were hired to be placed in Diya Info Solutions and Credence Family Office.
“Before I used Namma Vaani, I didn’t know whom to ask for advice, or what career I should choose, without letting my physical disability restrict me. But, after listening to the stories on the platform, I realized that with my talents, I can start and run a petty shop. The users on the platform advised me on how to start a shop, and now I’m looking forward to a successful career as an entrepreneur”
“I love listening to how the users on Hamari Vaani have overcome their barriers. Every time I feel demotivated, I listen to these stories, and it drives me to do better- after all, I’m not alone in my journey. Moreover, I love listening to the audios about deaf. I’m blind, and I never get to interact with the deaf- how else can I learn about deaf, if not Hamari Vaani!”
“I’m a teacher and I mostly teach children with vision impairment. I frequently share Hamari Vaani audios with the other teachers I work with, especially those without disabilities, so they can understand about disability.”
“At the age of 22, I was blind & deaf. I had lot of supports from friends but had to face lot of comments and criticism. My teachers taught me to work with devotion and get recognition with my work and not with disability. This week's Gurunath's success story is a part of my life… Hats off to Namma Vaani which is developing optimism in everybody.”
“We truly are amazed at the speed and conviction with which the Namma Vaani initiative has been adopted and do believe it is on the right direction for a potential scale up to service the information needs of many thousands across the country. We are indeed privileged to be associated with the Namma Vaani project & Enable India and wish it all the success”
