Evance Omondi

My name is Evance Omondi Odhiambo; I am a self-motivated, industrious person, talented, goal achiever and smart worker. I am confident in my ability to produce and while in some cases I can prepare for the worst or negativity in a situation, I often do my best to tilt off the odds so that the best will happen in my life and still hold control over it.

I was on my Final year, final semester at Kenyatta University whilst engaged in some small income business activities within the campus just to earn a leaving e.g. Academic Writing.
The training at ADDA by Sama School was great considering the large number of PWDs who came out for this training.

I am indeed very grateful to the EmployAble program for providing me with opportunity to be employed by cloud factory Kenya. This has been the best opportunity of my life because I get to do what I enjoy doing with cloud factory with simple tasks that are manageable and worker friendly. So my life has changed on the bright side but I still believe that, this is just the beginning and better days are still coming ahead. Thank you ADDA.

Believe that there are jobs out there; all it takes is a little determination, self-sacrifice to get there. PWDs need to get out of their comfort zones and aggressively take opportunities that are being organized by organizations like ADDA more seriously instead of just complaining of things that need to be done differently in the field of employment.

It is my hope that employable face two will be even more successful and that unemployed YWDs will welcome this great opportunity to get connected with potential employers who agree to provide their time for them, so that they market themselves professionally putting their skills and qualifications first and the disability second.  As I stated earlier, ADDA should try to increase their presence online more otherwise congratulations for a job well done.

Thank you ADDA for the great work and May God bless the work of your hands
