I am a correctional teacher from Kharkiv. I believe that entertainment can bring more people together than joint studies or even the work process. Everybody enjoys entertainment!  But inclusive joys are possible only if there are conditions for all participants, regardless of their physical capabilities, intellectual potential and communication skills. They all can play, have an equal chance to prove themselves and even become winners at the inclusive entertainment places. Our mission is to unite everyone in entertainment and make a holiday for everyone. We aim to create a leisure environment where everyone will have the opportunity to exercise their right to rest, communicate freely and interact with others, show all their abilities, and most importantly – get positive emotions and sincere satisfaction from the process in which they participate.
