VIDEO: Cafe to empower the hearing impaired opens in Tangerang

A cafe that hires people with hearing impairments has opened in Tangerang as the Indonesian government looks to revise a law to help provide more employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

The “Fingertalk” cafe is the first of its kind in Indonesia, according to owner Dissa Syakina Ahdanisa, where staff use hand gestures or read customers’ lips to get their orders. Customers are also provided with a sign language tip sheet enabling them to communicate with the staff.

“I was thinking let’s do something small or let’s create a place … where everyone could come but they could also see that the deaf could work together with them,” Ahdanisa said.
