Jimmy Daniels is a 30 year old black man who is deaf from birth. When I managed the Khanya project we employed him as a messenger (seven years ago), but soon discovered that he was capable of much more. Within a short while he became computer literate and he was then used to do data capturing and to perform other office duties. As his technology skills increased, he became responsible for reproduction of CDs and DVDs for education institutions. He also handled filing, mailing of materials to 1 400 schools, and was always willing to accept any task assigned to him.
He is honest, reliable and once he understands what must be done, hardly ever makes a mistake. Being deaf, he is not distracted at all by office chatter and so he remains focused on his job. He is a good lip reader and can use his voice to some extent, so communicating with him is not much of a problem.
When Khanya came to an end in March 2012, Jimmy became unemployed. If you are in the Cape Town area and have a vacancy for him, please contact me. You’ll have a solid worker on whom you can depend.
