Deaf and employment

CHF International: Tajikistan: Success Story from Tajikistan: Homidxoja finds a way. Homidxoja Oripov, 23-year old Isfara youth - born deaf and mute, was placed by CHF/ACT Program at “X Century”, a wood carving company, as a woodcarving apprentice. After finishing secondary school in 1999, Homidxoja started searching for a job. As he was the eldest son in the family, he was supposed to help his father to make a living for the family. In 2000, Homidxoja found a job in a local paint factory as an ordinary worker. After a year, he decided to quit because the salary was miserable. Moreover, the hard work in the factory wasn’t good for his health. In 2002, Homidxoja was hired by a local auto mechanic, but shortly, he was dismissed. The owner cited his disability and told him that he couldn’t understand what the customers were saying.
