We wish all children around the world a sincere and warm HAPPY CHILDREN'S DAY today, June 1. Also today, we warmly announce the start of the Helen Keller International Day, an event so dear to us, a month dedicated to raising awareness of deafblindness under the slogan Together again!
We thank the 14 partner schools that, so far, have gladly sent us their plans to celebrate a prominent figure in the field of deafblindness, Helen Keller.
During the whole month of June, approximately 500 children with deafblindness and sensory deficiencies from Arad, Bucharest, Buzau, Cluj Napoca, Focșani, Galați, Iași, Oradea, Sibiu, Târgu Frumos and Timișoara, together with over 150 teachers and parents, will perform various activities to mark this special moment in the world of deafblindness: creative workshops in sculpture, painting and drawing, sensory games, theater, pantomime and dance, culinary art, gardening, community awareness activities, nature trips, museum visits, therapy with horses etc.
Our desire is to give children and young people with deafblindness the chance to be noticed not only because of their uniqueness, but especially because with support, any child, young person and adult with deafblindness can show what they can do and how can get involved.
