Rehabilitation of women with multiple-intellectual disabilities
IDFC FIRST Bank has partnered with Om Creations Trust to empower women with disabilities through monthly stipends. As this program is dedicated to the empowerment of women with disabilities, these women are trained in the production of a wide range of food items and artistic products. Om Creations Trust then sells these and the revenue generated is invested back into training more women. The aim of this program is to help women with disabilities become financially independent.
Currently, we’re training them virtually due to lockdown restrictions. We intend to keep our women beneficiaries gainfully occupied and productive, especially in such times.
Since the start of this program in 2015, we’ve supported stipends for 210 women with the aim of the empowerment of women with disabilities. This program has special educators who guide and coach these women based on their individual capabilities.
To deliver Diwali orders on time, we conducted two employee-volunteering drives. 75 employees worked with 56 women at Om Creations to paint 900 diyas by hand and make 1000 boxes of chocolates.
At IDFC FIRST Bank, we aim to empower our customers to make a difference in the world. With this in mind, we bring you various initiatives in partnership with our partners that give you the opportunity to shoulder a cause of your choice.
Till date, we have 24+ programs that have impacted more than 50574 lives. Come, let’s together, put others FIRST.
