The AmCham Foundation disabled a fairy-tale performance with audio narration on the 13th of December for visually impaired children, with the implementation of the AKKU association, together with one of the winners of the 2015 competition, the Manna non-profit association. The performance was third in line, a journey that was lively, exciting, also understandable for visually impaired children, where the remote cultures became nearby, everything became tactile, visual.
The invited children were able to witness an exemplary integration – this theatre play was a unique experience, where the visually and/or other impaired children could enjoy the performance together with their healthy peers.
After the performance the American Chamber of Commerce handed over the donor letters to the winners of the “Rich leisure time – kiddiwink’s pleasure“ competition, announced in the summer.
Bencsik Edit, member of the AmCham Foundation Supervisory Board said: “We are proud to help the disadvantaged children with our 3 million forints donation this year, and to do this by also sensitizing the integrated healthy children and teach them that being different is ok.”
