Help us make our dreams a reality
‘Hevana’ building project
We dream of having a center of our own. A building of our own custom designed to suit our students needs will mean our students would get a better experience, not have to get used to a new place every two years and we will not be spending our limited resources on rent.
Our dream building would have:
- A sensory room
- A vocational centre
- A playground
- An artist studio
- A hall for workshops and social events
A coffee shop
An important step is to teach society that we, people with disabilities, can be good company, and that we can be employed in integrated, inclusive environments. A coffee/tea shop will provide the ideal environment for our often separate worlds to mingle, and learn to respect and like each other.
A coffee shop would provide:
- Employment for people with varied abilities
- Wall space for our artists to display their work
- Open mike nights for our poets and writers to entertain us with their creations
“Eating marvelous meals, sipping a refreshing cup, listening to wonderful poetry or music, surrounded by beautiful paintings, we will relax, and learn to build an integrated community.”
