Mr. Nesha Kumar of Cargills Ceylon plays a major role in employing persons with disabilities. Cargills Ceylon together with The Employers’ Federation of Ceylon supports persons with disabilities to be gainfully employed. In October 2015 The Employers’ Federation of Ceylon LEED (Local Empowerment through Economic Development) team sponsored by the ILO (International LabourOrganisation) did an “Employer Sensitisation” programme at Cargills Square in Jaffna. Staff members from different Cargills Food City branches participated at this workshop. This programme was important for the staff members of Food City because they have direct interaction with customers with disabilities. The introduction to EFC network on Disability was done by Ms. Sonali De Silva. “Etiquettes when dealing with persons with disabilities and accessibility” was done by Ms. ManiqueGunaratne. It was a new experience for the participants.
