Workers without disabilities interact with other workers with disabilities in the workshop. As one participant responded, "[in the workshop], persons with disabilities mingle with non-persons with disabilities. We are working hands-on-hands. The whole concept is to support that vision." A seamstress also pointed out that the necessary supports are in place for workers with disabilities to succeed - "we support them so much, and for the parents, we are training them to achieve something - so even if she's in the home, she can try helping her daughter at the same time."
Both men and women are employed at the workshop. As the sole man in the workshop, the tailor explained that "though I'm a man among all women, we work together as brothers and sisters happily here." Both community members who were interviewed remarked that though they had not spent very much time at the workshop, they had seen men and women entering the place along with persons with disabilities and without disabilities. Another seamstress stressed that within the workshop, there is no discrimination between men or women or people with disabilities and abilities. Instead, all of the workers "work together at the shop."
The workshop equips women to be independent and assist in the family. As the current cloth-maker described, "once you are getting paid, and you are achieving some handicraft to be self-employed, it will help both your husband and children and you the woman and other women around. Someone else might come and learn from you - it will go on and on. It will help everyone - both women and men and our children." One of the community members also stressed that girls often face traditional disadvantages in education within families since their education would receive attention last. By supporting women with developmental disabilities with tutoring, the workshop is "giving attention to the girls."
