NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Great news for Bahamians with disabilities. State Minister for Public Service Pia Glover-Rolle announcing plans to roll out the Public Service Professional Engagement Program, which she says will give people with disabilities the same career opportunities as other public service workers.

Marlena Leonard has more on the story.

The Ministry of Public Service is taking steps towards becoming more inclusive to Bahamians with disabilities, like Freeport Native, Royann Mott, who says her job search left her jaded.

Mott, who is originally from Freeport, has been studying at BTVI but says finding employment beyond bag packing has been difficult.

Her dream is to become a customs officer.

State Minister for Public Service, Pia Glover-Rolle, says the Public Service Professional Engagement Program, also known as “PS PREP”, will be a step in creating a country where people who have physical disabilities have equal opportunities.

Cheyanne Chipman, President of the Core project says this new initiative will level the playing field.
