Problem

1 in every 7 people on the planet experience some form of disability. And nearly 80% of young people with disabilities live in developing countries. In Indonesia, there are more than 20 million people with Disabilities (PwD) and 68% of them live on less than $2 disposable income every day. The biggest problem that PwD face in Indonesia is unemployment. According to the International Labour Organization, more than 13 million people with disabilities (PwD) in Indonesia are still struggling to get a decent job, affecting their own and their family’s well-being. On the other hand, an increasing number of companies in Indonesia have willingness and are even actively looking to employ PwD. However, they are struggling to find PwD that are qualified and meet their requirements.

Solution

Diffago connects job seekers with disabilities to employers and facilitates the hiring process from end-to-end. Our database allows PwD to quickly search for potential employers that are open to hiring people with disability. Our system helps employers to define the appropriate jobs and facilitate the hiring process. We also help persons with disabilities to get appropriate mobility aids to broaden their employment possibilities. Diffago empowers PwD sustainably, this includes: obtaining and funding appropriate mobility aids; provide information on formal university education possibilities; and helping them get access to training classes and workshops.
