Meanwhile, Murhardjani as the Head of Temanggung's BBRSPDI "Kartini" appreciated a number of companies that had provided support for BBRSPDI "Kartini" Temanggung ".

The reason is the classification of education required by the company is not in accordance with the qualifications of some persons with intellectual disabilities who are not in school," Muhardjani explained.

In the last 10 years only about 5 percent of the 506 people with intellectual disabilities were absorbed in the business world.

Murhardjani hoped that the 20 companies that attended the "Kartini" BBRSPDI could provide facilities for PBK locations or give. Other support is in the form of assisting with competency standardization of minimum skills required by the company.

"Even better if the company provides opportunities for cooperation or opening up employment opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities," he said.
