The ins and outs of an NGO working for persons with disabilities

Multiple visitors ask us what the future vision for this organization is. In this short essay, we want to address some of the queries visitors have emailed or enquired about. We hope that some of these addressed concerns will focus on organizational planning, future and current objectives, and the ideal vision for persons with disabilities in Gilgit Baltistan.

  1. If this is a disabled-led organization, how does it manage training persons with disabilities in IT?
    The team at Gilgit Baltistan’s Goodwill Movement trains persons with disabilities free of cost, with no upfront fees. The president, from Monday to Friday at our centre, provides IT training to Persons with Disabilities using JAWS (“Job Access With Speech”), which is a screen reader program for Microsoft Windows that allows blind and visually impaired users to read the screen either with a text-to-speech output. This way, we have taught many students the following skills : Input & Output devices, Introduction to computers, Introduction to Windows, Introduction to Software Installation, Introduction to Keyboard, Keyboard Commands + Shortcuts, Introduction to the User interface, and copying & Pasting along with Introduction to Texting. Other skills include basic knowledge of application software, system software, and MS word and Excel
  2. Can I see a demo of it?
    The website has a documentary showing the Goodwill Development Centre. Please visit our BLOGS section for this.
  3. I do understand the issues surrounding persons with disabilities, but where would my donation get spent?
    That is a thing that we tend to discuss after we have received your donation. We will contact you as soon as possible, within 72 hours.
  4. Is there any way to verify your work?
    If you want to do due diligence, by all means, do. GB GOODWILL MOVEMENT is under the Government of Gilgit Baltistan. If there are any queries,
