Texto para o AFT

Por: Ena Glaucia

Oi gente,
Tenho recebido e-mails de pedido e de incentivo para escrever artigos como esse voltados para os concursos que se aproximam, um deles é o AFT, então vamos hoje analisar esse interessante texto que extrai do site da ILO:

Fighting disability from within

Indonesia’s law states that disabled people must make up at least one per cent of a company’s workforce. As some garment factories employ over 100,000 people, the challenge is not an easy one. But now the law has found a new ally.

Workforce – mão-de-obra
Garment – roupa, vestuário
Employ – empregar
Ally – aliado

Feature | 03 December 2012
GENEVA (ILO News) – Angela Friska started suffering from asthma when she was 8. Her parents soon discovered that the strong medication was affecting her hearing ability, as they had to constantly repeat their words to her. By the age of 10, Angela was deaf.

Ability – habilidade, capacidade
Deaf – surdo(a), deficiente auditivo


The situation  shattered  her  selfconfidence. School  became a daily torment. Things did not improve when she went to university. It took her six years to complete a four-year bachelor thesis in technological engineering. “Imagining the examination itself was enough  to  make me panic. And even if I passed the test, what would I then do? Which company would be willing to recruit an employee like me?” she now says.

Shatter – estilhaçar, quebrar em pedaços
Self-confidence –  auto-confiança

Life change
Her life began to change when she volunteered to evacuate victims of the 2006 earthquake in Yogyakarta, on the island of Java. She not only discovered herself and her capacities, but also became aware that she could help others.

Herself – ela mesma
Aware – ciente, consciente, informado
Disabled people should be able to adapt to non-disabled people, and I trust they can.”
Disabled – desabilitado, incapacitado, inválido

“Most of the victims had broken bones. We carried them to a safer place where they could wait for medical treatment, “ she remembers. Later, she found a job in the IT department of one Indonesia’s largest media groups (Femina).

Safer – mais seguro
Job – trabalho, emprego

Her colleagues in the office were aware of her condition and accepted her different needs. Communication through telephone has now been replaced with e-mail. Now Friska has joined Better Work Indonesia, a joint programme of the ILO and the International Finance Corporation, as a consultant for the programme’s disability component.

Need – necessidade
Replace – substituir, trocar
Joint –associado, cooperação, junta

Her job will be to raise awareness among the entrepreneurs in the garment industry and encourage them to provide more job opportunities for disabled people. Over the next months, she will accompany Better Work’s enterprise advisors to factories to discuss with management and worker committees how to hire more people with disabilities and to ensure that factories are in compliance with Indonesian law.

Awareness – percepção, noção, conhecimento, consciência
Entrepreneur – empresário, executivo
Enterprise– empresa
Management – gestão, administração
Hire – empregar
