The Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) fast food franchise in Ghana has taken a great leap in its corporate social responsibility by hiring employees with hearing impairments to serve customers.
We've all seen the physically disabled on the streets Accra begging, or those with hearing and/or speaking impairments pass out printed white envelopes on the trotro. They do this hoping that a stray one cedis (or two) will materialize in the envelope when it's finally passed back to them.
It seems like the guys at KFC Ghana have also noticed this unfortunate problem. In a highly commendable move, the guys at KFC's Osu Branch have decided to make a bold step and hire employees with hearing and/or speech impairments.
