Meet Yousef, one of our wonderful assistants at COCOHAGEN! He helps in the warehouse with packing goods and spreading good cheer 😄😄
Yousef is visually impaired and has only lived in Denmark for 5 years. But it's certainly not something that prevents him from giving it a go by folding boxes at the old filling station in Humlebæk and telling funny stories.
"It's great to work with helpful and nice people. In addition, I really want to contribute to society, like everyone else," says Yousef.
Yousef is 24 years old, and COCOHAGEN is his first paid job. He has previously done an internship, but as he himself says: "it is difficult to find a job when you have a visual impairment".
According to figures from the Danish Society for the Blind, less than 20% of blind and partially sighted people over the age of 18 have a job, while 65% are on early retirement 😳
We are therefore very happy to be able to offer Yousef a job and have him on the COCOHAGEN team .. most of all because he is super sweet and talented! 🙌
