Safaricom in partnership with National Council for Persons With Disabilities (NCPWD) will now connect Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) to job opportunities through an online portal.

The online portal with 360 employers and more than 5,000 job seekers is powered by IT service provider Fuzu.

The portal has aided Safaricom in its recruitment needs as well as supporting NCPWD by bringing employers on board.

Further, TechCo has enrolled a campaign to encourage candidates to register and access the portal for employment opportunities.

The partnership has earned Safaricom a nomination at the 2023 Zero Project Awards.

“Through this project, we have made great strides in increasing the prospects of Persons With Disabilities in their search for employment. Our nomination at the 2023 Zero Project Awards is a testament to our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion,” Peter Ndegwa, CEO of Safaricom.

Zero Project was launched in 2008 to support social innovation, social entrepreneurship, and Persons With Disabilities.

It recognizes the rights of Persons With Disabilities and seeks to improve their lives.

“We are excited about this partnership with Safaricom, which boosts the job prospects and improves the quality of life of Persons With Disabilities,”  said Harun Hassan, the Executive Director, NCPWD.

Safaricom is among five organizations nominated in Kenya, which is among 19 countries in Africa to have their innovations nominated for the 2023 Zero Project Awards.
