Social entrepreneur helps the deaf community

Words by Smiley Team

Mandlakazi’s journey only started when he realised that his aunt, who is hard of hearing, was in danger.

Even though his aunt can lip-read, he became worried about her safety in highly congested or noisy areas.

As his aunt can’t hear alarms or other potentially life-saving sounds, he thought of a solution to help her and others in a similar situation.

Mandlakazi founded Senso, a startup SME, and created a wrist armband to help people with hearing impediments react to life-threatening situations in time.
