2 As a foundation we have been working since 2004, with the only objective of helping people with special needs to get a job, under the same conditions like everybody else, that means with all obligations and responsibilities as their workmates, and of course with a salary according to their contribution. We strongly believe that there should be no discrimination. To our understanding, it not acceptable special treatment for people with special needs. We want to see and treat individuals with disabilities like everybody else: as contributing membersof their community. Our staff consist mainly of technicians specialized in teaching people with special needs in the areas of: Agriculture, Bakery, Psychologists, Social Workers, Actresses, Lawyers and so on.
