Cafe run entirely by hearing impaired in Delhi
October 8, 2017
Echoes Cafe in south Delhi is run entirely by people with disabilities.
It is managed and run by people who are hearing and speech impaired and gives them an opportunity to integrate into society.
The cafe has launched a short video on Facebook called 101 India that explains how the cafe is run. Customers can order by flipping a switch on their table, which lights up a bulb on the counter so waiters know which table they need to attend to. They can then write down their orders and use flash cards to communicate.
The video has waiters using sign language to talk about their experience.
