COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital transformation and the adoption of digital technology, opening new opportunities for those who were traditionally excluded from certain economic activities if they have the necessary digital skills. With increasing possibilities for people to work remotely or online, people with disabilities who may have mobility problems in the past can now access digital work opportunities. Moreover, as business are required to have digital presence to survive during the pandemic, needs for digital marketing skills have soared. Visually impaired people may take on these growing opportunities, focusing on the digital skills that are most suitable and interesting for them. With the option of working online and remotely, they can work anywhere and stay in an environment that is safe and accommodative to their needs. Therefore, together with Suarise, the project provides digital content writing for visually impaired people. By equipping the participants with specific and relevant digital skills, the project provides new livelihood options for people with disabilities, a small yet significant step to rebuild better after COVID-19.
