This gelato parlour in Brazil employs mainly people who are deaf.

Disappointed with the lack of opportunities for the deaf community, Breno Oliveira opened a gelato parlour in Brazil employing mainly people who are deaf. The parlour, il Sordo, is proof it's possible to overcome barriers and promotes inclusivity, with regulars even starting to learn basic sign language.

Oliveira says of the concept "The idea was to create something that would be inclusive for everyone. il Sordo, happens to be a bar run by deaf people. But it is a shop selling tasty and delicious desserts for everyone.”
