- A restaurant in Tanzania called Neema Cafe employes only deaf staff as waiters, waitresses and chefs
- The initiative was borne after the pioneers realized they were not accepted or meagerly paid in their previous jobs
- Customer recommendation indicates that the restaurant runs very smoothly with no errors due to the staff's inability to hear
Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A Tanzanian cafe called the Neema Cafe has surfaced with an amazing attribute of employing only deaf people as the staff serving as waiters, waitresses, and chefs.
A video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official website of BBC reports that the signs are drawn on a chalkboard to help anyone who doesn’t understand the language of the deaf.
It is indicated that many Tanzanians, estimated to be about 10% of the entire population, have one form of disability or another.
Reports show that these disabled people are mostly denied jobs and are unable to find meaningful ventures to engage themselves in.
This appears to have been the motivation behind the move made by the brilliant group to set up something wonderful for themselves. William, one of the waiters, granted an interview saying:
"Before coming to work here, I never had friends. And I used to work in the garden with low salary. Every job I looked for, the employers refused to employ me because I am deaf. But now I have many friends."
A regular customer who could hear normally revealed in an interview that there are no problems or errors that arise because of the disability of the staff.
According to him, the waiters pay close attention to the facial expression of the customers and are able to satisfy any demands or requests they have.
In other news, a Black woman from Detroit by name Annetta Powell who has been imprisoned for 24 months at the Alderson Federal Prison in West Virginia, known as 'Camp Cupcake' has made a huge comeback in the real estate industry since she was released in 2016.
Blackenterprise.com reports that her business in real estate started as far back as 2002 when the brilliant woman started making progress. She leveraged her industry knowledge, published her first real estate book, and started conducting training seminars in 2007.
Life took a U-turn for the passionate entrepreneur just the following year as she was investigated for real estate fraud and later indicted in 2011 for mortgage fraud.
