Our foundation (aiming to transform to social enterprise) Jamba Hungary (in international cooperation with Jamba Bulgaria https://jamba.bg/en/) aims to include people with disabilities in the open labour market to contribute to the implementation of their rights to work and employment (Art. 27, UN-CRPD, 2006*). Jamba set the objectives of filling identified positions by people with diverse abilities in the private sector with a special focus on the multinational environment. Throughout high-quality, individually adapted education and training for both employers and employees, the organisation establishes optimal conditions for a gap filler, long term, and mutually optimized cooperation. Potential employees are recruited and educated according to the open positions and market needs to become enthusiastic, potent and loyal workforce at fields with significant unemployment rates and high fluctuation. Simultaneously we support the employers to become an open, inclusive and accessible workplace to persons with diverse abilities to establish circumstances that allow the persons with special needs to reduce high level of dependency on out-of-work disability benefits. We are committed to decrease outstanding unemployment rates of people with diverse abilities in Hungary to adopt heterogeneous communities in a competitive market where diversity is rarely seen. On a broader scale the foundation strengthens equal economic participation, facilitates social inclusion and contributes to an open society.

Sari, I know somebody, who probably can join to your initiative - because of the same interest...: Zora Molnar https://www.facebook.com/zora.molnar/about?section=education&lst=1110273715%3A1321569286%3A1590174893 Ask her! :)
Thank you for your input and sharing your experience! Some of them are new to me, I will look those up! Our strategy is exactly to be independent from donations after a while. We believe that structural social change is possible if we are able to embed it in the existing system of society. If successfully embedded in capitalism, so practically the implementation of human rights is funded by the market, this is where we see the long term potential for sustainability. So the new component is to reach the companies as partners and make them interested in the market value our clients provide and leave the charity approach behind. In the meantime we are super motivated to build stakeholder relations all with private, public and NGO sectors.
