Caminhando Seagull Project for Young People with Disabilities

Project Seagull

This is a project by Caminhando which focuses primarily on the socialization and involvement of young people with major cognitive disabilities.

It works to better the quality of life and promote social inclusion with cultural learning and social skills which lead to gaining autonomy and independence.

It facilitates cognitive development through art education experiences which help to gain awareness and control over the body as well as foster creativity and imagination.

Through this program we broaden the social and cultural horizons of these young people, bringing them to a better understanding of interpersonal relationships.
