Samarthanam believes that the disabled are capable of achieving much more that they think they can. This is why they are given a basic livelihood skills training and are provided with a wide array of employment opportunities. The concept of ‘Livelihood Resource Centre’ (LRC) was developed in 1999. The LRC provides the differently abled with basic technical and sector based training, training in areas like communication skills, tele-calling, accent training, soft skills and customer service. The training, food, accommodation are provided free of cost and they are then given placement and post placement support.

The LRC’s have state of the art infrastructure to support individuals with disabilities which include ramps, wheelchairs, railing, JAWS software, Braille and audio books, signs and board for people who are hearing impaired.

There is a total of 10 LRC’s spread across Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Jharkhand which have contributed towards training around 7500 unskilled youth. There is also an outstanding placement record of 60%.

Two success stories of the LRC programs are Kirana and Punar. Kirana is a BPO centre at Bidadi in Southern Karnataka whose primary objective is to provide employment to youth from the rural areas. The centre houses almost 100 employees of which 70% have disabilities.

Punar is a highly successful social enterprise which began in 2014. This project aims at empowering women from rural areas and women with disabilities. The women make beautiful handmade products using dry waste. The products are displayed at the in-house store at the Samarthanam Head Quarters in HSR Layout in Bengaluru.
