Between Silence, Shadows and Fragrances, DBI REVIEW, #45, January - June 2010, pp. 41-43. (2010) This article describes creating new possibilities to improve the quality of life for people with deafblindness in the Dominican Republic. The author introduces a new initiative that the Asociacion Dominicana de Sordociegos (ADSOC) is promoting along with the reaction and feelings from a deafblind participant. A micro-business managed by people who are deafblind has been established. Having persons who are deafblind going out on the streets and selling their products not only allows them to develop socially through integrating in the community, but also changes their role in their family from being passive to being active. This increases their self-esteem.
