Turning Ideas into Marketable Products and Services


The Training

In collaboration with Yayasan Plan International Indonesia (Plan Indonesia) and Citi Foundation, DNetwork has successfully conducted an entrepreneurship program in 2023 called Ready to Work: Green Entrepreneurship. This entrepreneurial program aimed to assist young entrepreneurs with disability to realise their business ideas into marketable products and services.


Ready to Work: Green Entrepreneurship started on the 22nd of February 2021 with 20 selected youth with disability who had diverse business ideas and came from different regencies in Bali. Participants received eight sessions of entrepreneurial training from February to May. This entrepreneurial training included an introduction to green entrepreneurship, planning for business strategy, financial planning, business implementation, and how to create a pitch deck.



The Mentorship

These 20 participants were then required to create a business proposal (individually or as a group) and compete for grant funds of as much as 2 million Rupiahs per business idea and one month of mentoring sessions to establish their businesses. In the end, 13 people from 10 business ideas could successfully launch their businesses. From the mentorship sessions, participants focused more on researching and developing their products & services, building branding and marketing strategies, and preparing their pitch decks for the market day.



Business Owners and Their Businesses

After five months of training and mentoring, the participants had successfully established their products and services. On the 14th of July 2023, 13 participants had the opportunity to showcase their businesses at the Annika Linden Centre.

Disabilitas adalah bagian dari keragaman manusia yang harus dihormati, diberdayakan dan dikembangkan. Meskipun penyandang disabilitas mungkin menghadapi berbagai tantangan unik. Namun, mereka memiliki potensi dan bakat luar biasa yang dapat berkontribusi di dunia kerja.

Menggali Potensi Talenta di kalangan Disabilitas

Penting bagi masyarakat untuk melihat lebih jauh melampaui dari sekedar hambatan yang dimiliki penyandang disabilitas,  cobalah  untuk berfokus pada bakat dan kemampuan potensial dari individu-individu ini. Setiap individu penyandang disabilitas memiliki keunikan dan kelebihan tersendiri.

Beberapa langkah untuk menggali potensi dan bakat dari penyandang disabilitas adalah:

Pendidikan Inklusif

Menyelenggarakan pendidikan inklusif yang memahami kebutuhan dan keunikan setiap individu, sehingga potensi dan bakatnya dapat dikembangkan sejak dini.

Dukungan Keluarga

Keluarga berperan penting dalam mengidentifikasi dan mengembangkan bakat anak dengan disabilitas. Dukungan keluarga dapat memberikan kepercayaan diri dan motivasi bagi individu tersebut.

Akses ke Program Pendidikan dan Pelatihan:

Menjamin akses individu penyandang disabilitas terhadap program pendidikan dan pelatihan yang relevan dengan minat dan bakat mereka.

Menyajikan Role Model

Memberikan panutan atau mentor yang juga memiliki disabilitas dan berhasil dalam karir mereka dapat menjadi inspirasi dan membuka wawasan baru bagi penyandang disabilitas, juga sebagai motifasi bagi mereka. 


Persiapan Dunia Kerja

Persiapan yang baik adalah kunci sukses dalam dunia kerja, terlepas dari apakah seseorang itu menyandang disabilitas atau tidak. Bagi penyandang disabilitas, persiapan yang matang akan membantu mereka mencapai kesuksesan dan kemandirian dalam dunia kerja. 

Berikut adalah beberapa langkah persiapan yang dapat dilakukan individu penyandang disabilitas untuk mempersiapkan diri menghadapi dunia kerja:

Kenali Bakat dan Minat

Mengenali dan mengidentifikasi bakat dan minat pribadi merupakan langkah awal untuk menentukan jenjang karir yang sesuai.

Halo Sobat DNetwork

#CeritaKerja kali ini datang dari Ela Rosa Lay, seorang user tuli DNetwork. Ela sangat bersemangat ketika dirinya mendapatkan kesempatan kerja sebagai Daily Worker Laundry Staff di Courtyad by Mariott Bali Nusa Dua Resort.

Ela melamar pekerjaan tersebut melalui platform DNetwork karena dirinya mempunyai skill laundry dan pernah mengikuti training laundry di salah satu Hotel. Setelah melalui tahap interview Ela dipanggil untuk bekerja di Courtyard Resort. Ela menjelaskan jika tidak ada kesulitan yang berarti baginya dalam mengerjakan pekerjaannya karena sudah terbiasa mengerjakan pekerjaan mencuci dengan mengunakan mesin cuci dan menyetrika serta tidak mudah terpengaruh apabila sedang bekerja.

Sedangkan untuk berkomunikasi dengan atasan dan rekan kerja Ela mengunakan gestur atau komunikasi tertulis sehingga tidak ada kesulitan baginya mengartikan instruksi dari rekan kerja.

Kesempatan bekerja ini akan dimanfaatkan dengan baik oleh Ela karena dirinya selama ini sangat sulit mencari pekerjaan.

Semangat selalu ya, Ela! semoga lancar dalam bekerja!
