Aqil met with the organiser of the stall Hema Vithlani.He asked her a few questions regarding their organisation. He learnt that BFDW attends around 15 exhibitions in a year where they sell items handmade by deaf women. The income generated from this sale,is shared with the poor deaf women.The exhibitions are very important to BFDW as they want to empowering deaf women.
The deaf women at the stall confidently communicate with the hearing customers. They communicate by writing things down or with the help of an interpreter.
