On September 23-29, marked by the United Nations as the International Week of the Deaf, "Nar" announced the results of the "Training School" project for people with hearing and speech disabilities. The mobile operator provided certificates to participants of the trainings held for people with hearing impairments to help them acquire a variety of professions and find an employer. The "Training School" project, implemented jointly with the “Support to the Deaf” Public Union, lasted 4 months. A total of 45 people participated in the trainings and were trained by experienced specialists in such specialties as cooks, confectioners and engine mechanics. The project also helped to provide employment for people with hearing disabilities. Thus, several participants have already been employed.
“For almost 4 years Nar has been organizing trainings in various professions for people with hearing and speech disabilities. Our purpose in organizing such trainings is to support them financially and spiritually. Nar contributes to our society by implementing various social projects. We are proud to be a viable company in the social life of people,” said Aziz Akhundov, head of Nar's Public Relations Department.
