Social initiatives in Pakistan for deaf people
On a regular basis, various initiatives are taken in Pakistan. They cater to the needs of deaf people. There is a cafe in Lahore which serves deaf individuals only. The cafe for deaf people is situated on Temple Road, Mozangg.
Deaf individuals gather and discuss their day to day struggles and stories over chai and snooker. Individuals share how they have been visiting the cafe for around 30 years. When bored from home, they come to the cafe, talk to people and vent out.
In July 2016, Coca-Cola Pakistan created a unique music experience for the Deaf Community of Pakistan. Innovative technology combined with the platform’s philosophy of inclusivity, Coke Studio for Deaf enables people with little or no hearing ability to get the basic experience of music.
