Our experienced facilitators are capable of supporting different learning styles and creating cognitive conflict required for learning by encouraging participation, expression, experimentation and reflection on theoretical models and practical experiences.
Access to education is one of the basic rights to humanity and when exercised effectively it promotes individual freedom and empowerment and yields important development benefits, and there are a number of factors that when positively addressed education does not end up becoming a privilege.
The lack of special schools in disadvantaged communities coupled with lack of skilled Special Needs Teachers has gravely affected the disabled community to an extent that skills/gifts and talents invested in them go un-nurtured resulting in the system labelling the disabled “Good for nothing – Better recipients of grants”.

The class was opened on 3 April 2017 and student numbers are increasing.
