As a part of this activity, last year, Bakcell together with the British Embassy in Azerbaijan have supported a conference on enhancing employability prospects for people with disabilities, organized by the British Council. The event has drawn the attention of business companies to the issue of employment of people with disabilities and relevant steps that shall be made towards raising awareness on the matter as well as increasing employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Azerbaijan.
It should be also noted that earlier this year Bakcell and the Center for Social and Social-Psychological Studies (CSPS) have announced the launch of a new social project. This project focused on creation of the "Web-portal for developing Social Entrepreneurship skills among vulnerable groups of population”. The main goal of the project is to create opportunities for socially disadvantaged individuals with entrepreneurial and practical skills to find a job or offer their services and products by creating and promoting their profiles at a website that will eventually help improve their economic conditions and integrate to society. Thus, http://www.destekolaq.az/ website created within the frames of this project has also been presented at the job fair.
