Tiffin service by deaf blind youth to be started in Goa's capital
December 25, 2016
In Goa, young adults diagnosed with deafblindness, will soon launch a tiffin service in Panaji.
This is their first income-generation activity. They were earlier making jewellery, flowers and candles.
Four young people, with different degrees of hearing and visual impairment, have been trained for months for this initiative. Their parents will help in the distribution of the tiffins.
The project is supported by the Automobile Corporation of Goa Ltd as part of their corporate social responsibility. It will give the deaf blind, who struggle with communication skills, the opportunity to be integrated into mainstream society.
