About Give Hope 1000 Initiative:
There are over a billion people with disabilities around the world. In developing countries, 80% to 90% of persons with disabilities of working age are unemployed. Unemployment among people with disabilities continues to be a major cause of concern. To reduce unemployment among people with disabilities, EquallyAble has launched “Give Hope 1000” initiative to create 1000 small businesses such as tea stalls, book stores, copy centers, sewing machines, juice stalls etc., in the range of $500 per person tailored to their skill sets and abilities.

One small business costs $500 and a total of $500,000 is needed for this initiative. The need of every beneficiary will be assessed along with the skills and the ability they have to operate a businesses before it is created.

The following business will be offered:
>> Tea/vegetable stalls
>> Book stores
>> Copy centers
>> Juice stalls
>> Sewing machines etc

Where offered:
This is a globally initiative and will be offered in a number of developing countries. EquallyAble is working with partner organizations to assess the need and resources available. A list will be shared when it is available.

Betterment of people with disabilities, is rooted deep in the board of trustees and the key volunteers of EquallyAble because they are either living with a disability, have a family member with a disability or passionate about disability development.
