Disabled youth create their own work opportunities through micro-entrepreneurship

Disabled micro-entrepreneurs are no longer waiting for job opportunities that don't materialise. This New Zealand based pilot project was carried out as a proof of concept that such learning materials can inspire disabled youth to take charge of their career development. This idea is still at the experimental level. The project will develop these interviews into a core online curriculum for disabled youth to get inspiration from stories of unusual successes.

Its target audience is people interested in exploring starting their own business or learn from these ideas to enhance their existing business performance. The project evidences how sharing (persona and other people's interviews) are how people learn best.
