Xi'an coffee shop brews up jobs for the hearing-impaired


Silence Coffee provides employment to physically challenged people in Xi'an, Northwest China's Shaanxi province.


The coffee shop has been open for over two months and, apart from the manager, all the other three staff members are hearing-impaired.


As an employment incubation base for physically challenged people, Silence Coffee provides warmth to employees and customers in the cold winter.


The coffee shop has plans to employ more people in the next six months, providing a platform for physically challenged people to learn skills, realize their social value and gain confidence in life.
