Adevic enables visually impaired people to produce sweets and jams

Praia, Oct 29 (Inforpress) – The Association of the Visually Impaired in Cabo Verde (Adevic) is promoting a training program for people with disabilities in the production of desserts, cooked fruits and liqueurs as a way to “provide self-employment” and to”combat welfarism”.

The information was advanced to Inforpress by the president of Adevic, Marciano Monteiro, who explained that this training, which starts today, will be implemented under the “Three senses” project, which, in turn, aims to empower people with visual impairment and promote social inclusion in Cabo Verde.

“We want with this training not only to provide self employment but also to find a way to have something to do in the future because we understand that we have to work so that we do not have to ask for support whenever it is necessary”, he said, stating that social inclusion is only valued when people considered at the margin of society “contribute in some way” to the development of the country.

As he explained, the “Five senses” project will have its own brand which values the products quality, he also added that after the trining in sweets and jams the beneficiaries will work in a cooperative or individually for placing the products in the market.
