Promoting job training for deafblind people in Peru
14 October 2014
Posted by Kiomi Párraga Cordero
As part of its occupational skills programme, Sense International (Peru) has developed four workshops to help provide job skills to people with deafblindness and multiple disabilities.
Through workshops on baking and massage in Lima, and music and jewellery Arequipa, young people and adults can develop skills which will allow them to generate income for themselves and their families. This can also help increase their confidence, feelings of security, and belonging to society.
There are 32 participants in the workshops, which Sense International (Peru) developed in partnership with other organisations - the Association of Parents and Families of Deafblind People, the Association of Friends of Deafblind, Deaf and Blind People, and the Center of Rehabilitation of Blind Adults from Arequipa.
