The “Financial Adoption of a Child” program
Though the “Financial Adoption of a Child” program – in which part of the returns of the Charity Gala was allocated – individuals and organizations take on the cost of the rehabilitation and educational programs of disadvantaged children with disabilities.
Through the Early Educational and Therapeutical Program – Unit of Special Preschool Education, our children have access to necessary rehabilitation programs, and receive the required specialized education. Therefore, they develop their cognitive, social, emotional abilities and their mobility, and it is more likely for them to become independent adults. ELEPAP’s goal is to support the children to reach their maximum, and to be able to join general education. We are very proud that every year almost 70% of our alumni is integrated to the General Education Primary School.
