Job Opportunities Will Be Available for Persons With Disabilities: President

Job opportunities for persons with special needs will soon be available, President Dr. Mohamed Muizzu said last night.
At the second forum of the “Aha” series in Sultan Park last night, a person with special needs asked the President what job opportunities are available for such people.
The President said the Cabinet had decided a month ago to provide job opportunities to persons with special needs in government ministries and companies, with special provisions to accommodate individual needs.
“Opportunities will come very soon. These will be very extensive.”

On December 17th, the President decided to formulate a rule to employ people with disabilities under the Employment Act.
The policy describes the provision of employment opportunities for persons with disabilities in the Maldivian Civil Service and Government-owned companies.
The policy also includes making the workplace a safe place for people with disabilities, eliminating potential challenges in the workplace, and conducting disability sensitization training.
There were 12,011 persons registered in the disability registered in the Maldives as of November last year.
