Some workers without disabilities described modeling inclusion in their community as a result of learning about persons with disabilities in the workshop. As one tailor without a disability told us, "One day, we were doing some communal labor, and this child with down syndrome was passing. She wanted to be involved, but people thought she couldn't do anything. But because I've had this experience about how to relate to them, I was able to call to this girl and give her the broom, and she started sweeping nicely. It came as a surprise to the other people who thought this girl with a disability was not important and couldn't do anything."
The workshop promotes a unique style of leadership that emphasizes equality. When describing her leadership style, the manager stated that "this workshop is not a power over workshop, but it is a workshop where we share ideas and work together as a team. Nobody should work down on anybody. Everybody is very important. That is our priority and our first goal when we employ somebody. So everybody understands it - equality, no one is higher than anyone."
Members of the community are seeing the activities of the workshop and becoming more aware that a workshop that emphasizes equality like this is possible. As the manager explained, "Through advertisements and continuing to advertise whatever we do, a lot of people will see and do see what we do. The impact will grow through the expansion of the workshop."
