AAMA needs a van to transport children and teenagers with special needs so they can enjoy several different programs in different spaces.
The AAMA (Association of Adapted Motor Activity) needs a 9-seater van to transport children, young people and adults with special needs for various AAMA programs including: IIP (Early Intensive Intervention), ATLs (Free Time Activities), summer camps and INtegrarTE (training and integration into the labor market). Our old van broke down and the arrangement is very expensive. We already have the financial support of Lisbon City Council and Delloite, we also have some amount raised, but it is not enough.
Making the world a place where there is no exclusion depends on everyone. Organizing and implementing our AAMA project on a daily basis is our contribution. What is yours? Participate in this campaign. We are waiting for you.
