Activity description

Our center was founded in order to help fulfill the needs of children with disabilities and their families. We provide social services to children between the ages of 7 and 18, embracing a wide spectrum of abilities and needs - from mental and physical disabilities to complex developmental challenges. We stand by the side of families, offering support that transcends the ordinary. Together, we explore sports, create art, and tackle everyday tasks, nurturing growth and learning. As a part of our team, you'll be at the forefront of this incredible journey. Picture yourself in the midst of outdoor adventures, sharing in the daily routines, and most importantly, infusing the center with fresh, innovative ideas. Join us in this exhilarating mission - where every day brings new opportunities and every child's triumph is a cause for celebration.
