Our Social Enterprise Project was established in October 2010 in the city of Petaling Jaya, Malaysia and was initially named as DIB Coffees of Hawaii. However, the project was renamed as DIB Restaurant Cafe in 2016 and DIB was changed from Deaf-in-Business to become Disabled-in-Business, with the intention to provide similar skills training and employment opportunities to other people-with-disabilities (people in wheelchairs being the possible beneficiary).
DIB "ZEROES TO HEROES" Project is self-funded and a Non-profit establishment, and most profits shall be distributed to our staff as Profit Sharing, and some profits retained as operating expenditure. We realise that we are entering uncharted waters, especially after the Covid pandemic, and thus expect tremendous challenges ahead. Hence, we welcome philanthropists as well as business organisations to suppot/partner with us, as we endeavour to sustain this Community Business project and make it a success.
With more than 12 years of business experience, we have developed a sustainable Social Enterprise business template employing up to 80% Deaf staff and we are most happy to collaborate with passionate individuals or organisations to setup more DIB outlets in Malaysia and overseas.
