The availability of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during the Covid-19 pandemic is very important and crucial. The skills of workers making personal protective equipment also need to be improved. This program aims to improve, develop knowledge, attitudes, and skills for people with disabilities, who are a group of craftsmen making masks and personal protective equipment, so that the products produced meet the standardization of PPE during the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). This program is implemented from June to November 2020. Participants of this program are 20 people with disabilities (15 craftsmen and 5 administrators) in Bedali Village, Lawang District, Malang Regency, East Java Province, Indonesia. The method used in implementing this program is a workshop and training. This program is implemented in collaboration with the MA-LINKSOS Community. The results achieved in these workshops and training were increased job skills and income for handicraftsmen with disabilities, which led to equal access to work and a decent life. This workshop and training overcome the scarcity of PPE in Malang Regency, Indonesia, by making innovative face masks and standardizing PPE by craftsmen with disabilities.
