MUMBAI: Quikr, India’s number one online classifieds company and Blind Relief Association, Delhi (BRAD), a premier NGO serving in the field of education and training of the blind, today announced a long term collaboration to support the visually impaired people by offering them training opportunities with Quikr.

According to the agreement signed on the World Sight Day, the selected trainee-agents will contribute to the company’s day to day operations.



The 10 visually impaired trainee-agents inducted will perform assigned tasks for Quikr. They will be trained to verify ad listings posted by the customers on Quikr, to ensure that the data and information listed is confirmed and accurate.  The Quikr team is working very closely with the Blind Relief Association team to ensure that they are well trained and equipped to understand this rapidly evolving category and can add value in ensuring a high quality of listings on the site.



Commenting on this initiative, Founder and CEO of Quikr Pranay Chulet said, “Quikr is honoured to enter into this alliance with the Blind Relief Association of Delhi. We recognise that there is a prevalent notion that blindness and vision impairment rob people of their self reliance, and on the occasion of World Sight Day, we seek to change that mindset by bringing out the potential of these individuals. With the correct training, we will provide them with job opportunities which will build their confidence by working with a fast growing internet company.”



Talking about the partnership, Hony Executive Secretary of Blind Relief Association Kailash Chandra Pande, said, “It is a privilege for us to be associated with a company like Quikr which is such a powerful brand in the online space. With this opportunity, we are providing these individuals with quality training and work experience which will hone their capabilities. This is a great way to give these youngsters the confidence and skills required to navigate in the workforce.”
