Our Association wants to give the possibility to our members to be involved in many sectors. We organize courses in collaboration with other institutions, such as courses of computers, accountancy, language etc. From the other side, the objective of our association is to provide the possibility to our educational members (sociologists, professors etc.) to acquire experience and knowledge for the right pedagogical practice concerning the people with disabilities. All our learners are people with disabilities. In addition we aim through our activities to provide disabled with skills so as to ensure employment. Unfortunately the level of unemployment of disabled in Greece is very high not only because of the lack of skills from the part of the disabled but also because employees are not used to give the chance to disabled to work. They believe that they will not manage to fulfil their expectations. The collaboration with different organizations from different sectors will enrich their knowledge and experience. For all these reasons we strongly believe that our try will provide the disabled the chance to prove their unique willingness to work and learn as all other people do.

The creation of the association was a mean so as to improve the everyday life of disable and furthermore to give a collective character to members demands.

All the above intent to empower the disabled people and provide them with all necessary skills and experience in order to correspond to today’s demands.
