Employment resources

Sightsavers aims to ensure that people with disabilities and other marginalised groups are able to receive training, get a job and support themselves.

We aim to empower these groups to claim their rights to employment and other services, and support governments and other organisations in low and middle income countries to help them create inclusive employment policies.

Through our learning, we have published the documents below.
