Furthermore, the project mentors the 50 participating women. It is targeted at unemployed Deaf and hearing women.

Author Tshepiso Betty Mokoena published this article at the fundraising website GivenGain in 2017. The web page is accessible for people using screen reading software, but with difficulty. For example, images use alt tag descriptions for people who cannot see. However, some forms do not have labels. Another website, World Pulse, has more information on how the project helps Deaf women become self-employed.
