Music For All - Inclusion of Children and Adults with Disabilities Through Music Fund
For the purchase of 2 specially-developed Arcana instruments - for inclusion of children and adults with various disabilities through music. The creator of the instrument aimed precisely at the development of such a product, which would meet the possibilities of people with specific needs to make music, play, and have fun.
We would like to implement the 2 Arcana instruments in our day care and therapy centers (one in Sofia and one in Ruse), where we work with over 150 children and youth with disabilities and
mental sufferings (including autism and autistic spectrum). Our main goal is to upgrade our work by giving them new opportunities for expression, creativity, to develop their potential, and at the same time to be used for therapeutic work - calming, concentration, crisis management.
The instrument is easy to use, designed for inclusion, adaptable and versatile, easy to teach, easy to learn and play, suitable for all ages, skills, and abilities. The main customers include - Daycare centers, Rehabilitation centers, occupational therapists, special-needs schools, elderly homes hospitals, etc. Through your support, we can be one of the first organizations that will implement in their
