Kolkata cafe that is run by young adults with disabilities
Cafe I.Can.Flyy that started in August this year in Kokata, is a cafe with a cause.
The cafe offers a safe and secure workplace for seven young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who prepare food and work under supervision.
The cafe is the idea of psychotherapist Minu Budhia who aims to provide disabled people with meaningful jobs and improve their self-confidence.
The cafe was started as an addition to the vocational training institute I.Can.Flyy, where young adults with learning disabilities are trained in various skills such as data entry on computer, bakery and crafts-making.
Those who went through training at the bakery for six months were placed with the cafe.
