With an estimated unemployment rate of 85% among the Deaf in Kenya, few will have an opportunity to discover their potential, work in dignity and earn a fair wage. Employers are simply not willing to deal with the communication issues of working with the Deaf.
Sasa Designs gives Deaf artisans the chance they’ve been waiting for – the chance to learn new skills, to discover what they are capable of and to feel productive.
The income these artisans earn gives them a way to support their families — to send their children to good schools, to provide better nutrition and healthcare for them. Instead of always feeling like a burden to the family, they move to a position of respect as one who contributes to the household income.
D.O.O.R. (Deaf Opportunity OutReach) International, has launched Sasa Designs in response to the overwhelming poverty and joblessness among Deaf people in Kenya. Creating opportunities for the Deaf through this business is a tangible expression of God’s love for them.
D.O.O.R. International, is a 501(C)(3) Nonprofit organization, dedicated to bringing God’s Word and biblical Christian fellowship to Deaf communities worldwide. Sasa Designs is just one way D.O.O.R. International is working with the Deaf. For more information of what DOOR is doing, refer to our web site at www.doorinternational.com
