The rationale behind the project:

Our country pays special attention to the accessibility of education to children with severe and multiple disabilities in accordance with their health, cognitive abilities, and to their inclusion in social interaction with healthy socialization and adaptation in society. In this regard, each special educational institution strives to improve the conditions for children during the educational process and extracurricular activities. Our educational institution is no exception. This project will help improve the conditions in the institution of education for children with disabilities:

  • insulation of the building (replacing the roof, cladding of the building) will contribute to the health of children, therefore, the number of sick leaves will be reduced and the educational process will not be interrupted;
  • improvement of the territory will allow children with disabilities to develop not only physical and motor skills but also a harmonious balance of socialization and individualization in the process of education.

Activities after the project ends:

The educational institution will conduct systematic active exercises aimed at discovering physical abilities, motor skills and creating prerequisites for their fuller disclosure. Plans are in place to arrange sports events, sports holidays, health days, competitions together with healthy peers, legal representatives: "Sports Hour," "Small Paralympic Games," "Feast of the Balloons," "Health Trail," "Neboley-ka" and others.

The landscaping of the site will decorate the territory and create an aesthetic look not only of the educational institution but also of the surrounding area of Belynichi. Aromatherapeutic properties of plants will be used in developmental work with children and will help create a more favorable environment.
