We met Talana while recruiting in Vioolsdrift. She had been standing in line to apply for the Community Works Program. When it was her turn to fill in the contract, her neighbour told us she is mute and deaf. She is able to read lips but she would not be able to reply. To our surprise she was fully literate. She was able to complete the contact and sign where required.
Talana was born with this disability, but it has never stopped her from reaching her dreams. She has a child that she raises on her own and she has worked on different projects over the past few years.
She does not allow her disability to determine her life. Even though she has many obstacles in her way, she conquers each one. 3L Development is proud to have given her the opportunity to continue improving her life.
