Special Needs

We value the diversity within the human community.

We believe that Disability is Diversity and a natural part of the human experience.

We believe in working towards abandoning the idea that children have to become “normal” in order to contribute to the world. We look beyond typical ways of becoming valued members of the community. We work towards a society that realizes the achievable goal of providing all children with an authentic sense of belonging.

We imagine a world where all children with disabilities learn, play, socialise and live as an integral part of the community and adults with disabilities live and contribute to society in their own unique way. Inclusion is the only way to rehabilitation, education and empowerment of people with disabilities. Inclusive Education is the most important step towards an Inclusive Society.
