Riziki Source: Connecting People with Disabilities to Job Opportunities
In today's digital age, technology has become an integral part of our daily lives. From social media to online shopping, we rely on technology to make our lives easier and more efficient. However, for people with disabilities, technology can also play a crucial role in helping them to find and secure employment. One organization that is using technology to help people with disabilities find jobs is Riziki Source, a mobile App that is being rolled out in Kenya and was supported to scale through AT2030's Innovate now programme.
Riziki Source was founded by Fred Ouko, who saw the barriers that people with disabilities face in finding employment. The organization's goal is to provide job training and job placement assistance to people with disabilities, with a focus on the hospitality industry. They also support employers in creating inclusive and accessible workplaces and work with employees to ensure success in their roles.
One of Riziki Source's main goals is to break down the barriers that people with disabilities face in finding employment. The organisation provides job training and job placement assistance to people with disabilities, with a focus on the hospitality industry. Riziki Source also provides support to employers to ensure that their workplaces are accessible and inclusive, and works with employees to ensure that they are successful in their roles.
One of the ways that Riziki Source is breaking down barriers and creating opportunities for people with disabilities is through mobile technology. The organization has developed a mobile app that helps people with disabilities find job opportunities in their local area. The app, called "Riziki", allows users to create a profile, search for job opportunities, and apply for jobs directly from their mobile device.
