To Overcome Difficulties


Employment has always been a problem for disabled people. Disabled people face a lot of unusual obstacles and barriers in getting a job or building their own business. Under these conditions it is important that to provide disabled people with the same level individual choices opportunities and control in their daily lives as non-disabled people for contemporary societies.


Working-from-home online jobs can be the solution for disabled person’s professional and personal life. Furthermore “e-mentoring” as a home based online job will also be suitable to work from home. In the virtual workplace e-mentoring can be a method of helping disabled people to get a new job and improve their job competence by providing suggestions and encouragement.

The aim of VOCA extended Project is increased accessibility to home based vocational training and increased attachment to the labor market for disabled people. Specific aim is to train mentors and consequently support (home-based) employability of disabled people by means of mentoring. Our basic approach can be summarized as follows:

  • VOCA extended has established on the basis of home based e- mentoring
  • VOCA extended web site will bring together mentees and mentors
  • The physical disabled mentors who request to work in their homes will transfer their knowledge and experiences to the physical disabled mentees with the aid of training received from VOCA web site.
  • Mentor and mentees will maintain the relationship and cooperation between each other at the next stage.
