Last month Delhi based charity Make Love Not Scars launched an online job portal on their main website to help victims of acid attacks re-enter mainstream life.
The portal, dubbed Skills Not Scars is a free service available to people in all parts of the country. In the first 48 hours of its launched had garnered over 30 members.
The site also has a ‘I can’t hire but I can share’ option where employers and businesses who don’t have any current openings can still support candidates by sharing applications through Facebook, Mail, Twitter or Linkedin.
The launch is also in line with the Delhi government’s recently program to give employment opportunities to acid attack victims.
