North Macedonia’s first sign language cafe opens

The cafe welcomes and caters to people with speech and hearing impediments.

The first sign-language cafe in North Macedonia has opened its doors in the capital Skopje.

It is hoped the business venture will inspire thousands of other people with disabilities in the country, who struggle to find work and rely heavily on the state for help.

The cafe’s owners hope to level the playing field and bring more options to the table.
