ABOUT THE PROGRAM
With a view to empower the differently abled, ANEW took the bold decision in 2013, to offer a customised program in IT skills for the hearing impaired.
Under-privileged Hearing Impaired candidates who have dropped out of / completed 12th std., as well as, final year students / graduates from any discipline, with an understanding of English, are enrolled into this special batch. The selected candidates undergo training in:
- MS Office
- Internet Usage
- Special emphasis on typing speed
The course is conducted at ANEW premises as well as in the premises of Presidency College for their hearing impaired (women) students.
The NIIT Foundation co-certified and partially funded course runs for a period of 4 months and is conducted by computer professionals employed by ANEW. The course requires customisation and is tailor-made to meet individual requirements.
Enable India Foundation

ANEW’s Hearing-Impaired trainees have been successfully placed in sustainable careers, most of them through our placement partner, Enable India Foundation. It is also gratifying that companies are now recognising the value of differently abled employees and offering them opportunities through the CSR route. Their successful placements motivates us to expand the course further.
