About The National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People
The National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People (NCPEDP), India’s leading cross-disability advocacy organization, in collaboration with Azim Premji Foundation (The Philanthropy), is proud to announce ‘The NCPEDP- Javed Abidi Fellowship on Disability’, a three-year immersive grassroots fellowship programme for youth with disabilities having a keen interest in disability issues, and looking to build a career in the development sector particularly Disability Rights and Inclusion.
Through this initiative, NCPEDP envisions developing a second line of leadership for the Indian disability movement with in-depth grassroots knowledge and hands-on experience of urban and rural realities in matters of data-driven and evidence-based policy analysis. The fellowship programme will give 25 youth with disabilities the opportunity to delve into and voice issues faced by persons with disabilities at the grassroots with the support of NCPEDP’s National Disability Network across India.
NCPEDP will provide essential knowledge-based support in the form of training and capacity building workshops on rights-based mechanisms and disability rights, guidance and exposure to policy advocacy strategies at both Centre and State levels, mentorship under field experts and a competitive stipend of up to Rs. 25,000 to meet necessary needs and provisional expenses during the fellowship programme.
