NCPEDP features on Discovery

DNIS News Network – National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People (NCPEDP) will feature on a short film being made by Discovery Channel.

Samsung Electronics has sponsored short films on success stories wherein Information Technology (IT) has helped in changing lives of disabled people. Aslam Amin, one of NCPEDP’s past scholars will be featured in the film.

Amin, who was granted scholarship under NCPEDP’s annual fellowship programme for pursuing higher education, has been successfully placed at HPS Foundation, arm of IT major HCL Perot System.

Samsung Electronics is closely working with the cross-disability advocacy NGO and has set up an Employment Unit within NCPEDP that is likely to look after placements for meritorious disabled youth in the private sector.
