The main objective of the date is to provide greater understanding of disabilities and the mobilization to defend dignity, rights and well-being in order to create a more inclusive and equitable world for people with disabilities, be it physical or mental.
This is a cause that we have supported for more than 15 years with CERCIGIA and it is with great satisfaction that we will continue to support it!
Who is CERCIGAIA?
CERCIGAIA was born on the initiative of a group of parents of mentally handicapped children who did not find an answer for their children either in daycare centers, nurseries or schools. It started operating in April 1977 with 40 children and currently supports around 300 children, young people and adults. The main objective of this organization is to achieve the autonomy and socialization of the person with a disability and the promotion of individual well-being, favoring their insertion in the different environments in which any citizen moves.
