At the end of the training period/ each batches CAFEBILITY job fair will bring together different stakeholders (trainees, hospitality sector, NGOs, disability organizations, people from similar initiatives, social entrepreneurs, etc) to raise further job opportunities and awareness across the sector. Indian legislation dictates bigger companies must give 2% of their net profits to charitable causes. That is the reason more and more companies are looking to work with NGOs and to hire staff with disabilities.
