Social enterprise scheme to aid deaf community in securing employment

A deaf woman who is to become a barista thanks to a social enterprise has said she is "excited to start" and hopes to encourage customers to learn to sign. Gary Hopkins, 58, who hails from Cape Town, South Africa, founded social enterprise I Love Coffee, which trains deaf people to become baristas, and said that the venture, which began in South Africa seven years ago, was a "happy accident" which has since gone on to help over 100 deaf people.
