Christine commented on We Can! Wellness Center - South Sudan

Collaborating with an already existing service establishment (Seeing Hands) is a great win-win idea for establishing a more inclusive wellness center. Encouraging trade opportunities with existing business could also help with marketing and overcome monetary hurdles faced by both workers and new clientele. I was a bit unclear about the specific role of visually and speech impaired individuals with respect to income generation. Would they already be professionals in some aspect of wellness service/business operation as are the massage therapists? Or would training be an aspect of this proposal? Congratulations on your unique approach to bringing people with disabilities to the forefront and I wish you success.
