Special Talent Exchange Program (STEP) is the only cross-disability organization in Pakistan having ECOSOC status within the United Nations. Founded in 1997 by Persons with Disabilities themselves, STEP transformed into a leading voice of persons with disabilities at all levels starting from the grass root to the international forums.
STEP has been privileged to work in close collaboration with notable members of international donors, international organizations, corporate sector and region-wide network of Disabled People’s Organizations (DPOs).
Having an experience of almost two decades STEP is finding its place to be the most specialized not-for-profit organization on the subject. Being part of several national and international think-tanks, STEP is among the founding member of the following entities; The Global Alliance on Accessible Technologies and Environments (GAATES), Asia-Pacific Development Centre on Disability (APCD), World Institute on Disability (WID), South Asian Disability Forum (SADF), and Working group on Incheon Strategy 2013-22 at UNESCAP.
Telenor Pakistan (TP) is 100% owned by the Telenor Group, an international provider of high-quality voice, data, content, and communication services to over 173 million subscribers in 8 markets across Europe and Asia.
In line with SDG # 8 & 10, TP has created dignified opportunities for PWDs aiming to make them a valuable resource to the economy and thereby becoming the most disabled-friendly organization in Pakistan. TP launched OPEN MIND PROGRAM for PWDs in 2013 and has run six (6) successful batches so far.
Telenor and STEP, in their organizational capacity, are striving hard for mainstreaming disability issues as an essential part of relevant strategies of sustainable development, as per UNCRPD. We are also incorporating a gender perspective in all our efforts and aim at ensuring complete accessibility to the physical, social, economic and cultural environment, promoting inclusive health & education, electoral and political process and disaster risk reduction for all disabled persons.
Through this portal, we are targeting the goal of achieving higher levels of economic productivity through financial inclusion, diversification, technological upgrading and innovation, skills development and capacity building, self-employment, entrepreneurship, and micro-financing.
Our ambition is to become a one-stop digital hub, based on a universal design with accessible format and technology, for people with disabilities as well as corporate organizations, for helping them both steer closer towards a better, sustainable future, together.
