ECDD works to help increase vocational skills training opportunities for youth and adults with disabilities, in both institutional and community-based settings. ECDD will continue to work with the Federal TVET Agency and Regional TVET Agencies on how to implement a policy and practice of disability inclusive TVET. This work will continue under the ECDD-LFTW Netherlands Employable project, the ECDD-Irish Aid Ethiopia project and the ECDD-USAID ISTEP II program, if approved. The work will be expanded in SNNPR Region with the start of the ECDD-LFTW Regional Disability Mainstreaming Partnership Program, and focus on Disability Inclusion Awareness Training (DIAT) and specialized training for personnel of TVET institutions.  In addition, the Partnership Program will support the expansion of community-based vocational skills training activities in the Region.

ECDD also works to increase income generation and employment opportunities for youth and adults with disabilities and their families. The work will continue under the ECDD-Abilis Foundation grant-making project to provide grants to groups of persons with disabilities engaged in income-generating activities. In addition, a new ECDD-CBM project will help organizations engaged in the creation of Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSLAs) to include persons with disabilities, especially women, as VSLA members. ECDD will also provide Basic Business Skills (BBS) and Business Development Skills (BDS) training to members of income-generating groups and VSLAs.  ECDD will also continue to work with selected micro-finance institutions to increase their organizational and staff capacity to provide services to clients with disabilities.

ECDD will continue to provide job-hunting skills training for TVET and university graduates with disabilities, under the ECDD-Threshold Association project and the ECDD-LFTW SNNPR Partnership Program.  Finally, all ECDD projects will seek to place trainees with disabilities as interns in public and private sector companies and organizations, in collaboration with the Ethiopian Business and Disability Network (EBDN).
