    • Create a job for a person with intellectual difficulties

People with intellectual difficulties need support and stimulation in order to be able to reveal and develop their full potential. As all others, they feel satisfaction with meaningful tasks and work that allow them to express themselves in a self-affirmative way, and gain a feeling of engagement, personal dignity and confidence. For people with intellectual difficulties, finding and holding a job has numerous advantages, including through transforming them from passive users of minimum social benefits into a valuable resource for the community.

By offering a suitable job to a person with intellectual difficulties who has been trained at the Day Care Centre, you change his/her life perspective and create opportunities for an independent life. A suitable job is the best safeguard against poverty.

Please contact us to discuss any available opportunity.
