The first in Ukraine camp for girls with disabilities was launched

On May 1, 16 participants from different parts of Ukraine came to the camp in Irpin to gain experience and learn new skills shared by the girls from the School of Active Rehabilitation for Women with Disabilities "I Can!". "We have a lot of experience in organizing active rehabilitation camps, but the camp aimed at helping women is the first for us. And it is very scary and at the same time nice, because we are finally able to make it and it's only forward from hereon now!" – Uliana Pcholkina, organizer of the Active Rehabilitation Camps said at the beginning of the training.

For the past eleven years Uliana herself has been in the wheelchair, but it did not prevent her from making a successful career. Now Uliana Pcholkina is the mentor of the project "I Can!" Inspiration. Opportunities. Success and is working on active rehabilitation of people with disabilities. Using her own example, she inspires young girls and demonstrates that they can achieve anything they want in life by themselves, despite difficulties and obstacles. The main thing is to believe and to act. "Thanks to the project Inspiration. Opportunities. Success of the Elena Pinchuk Foundation with the support of the Coca-Cola Foundation today we are able to launch the school. In addition, we have already been supported by many great people and companies".

As of today, the participants of the school have already got acquainted with each other, learnt about the philosophy of the active rehabilitation and determined what was leadership and what features were essential to leaders. They’ve discussed the role of a group of assistants and instructors and worked out the support techniques during the overcoming of the simple architectural obstacles.

The school of active rehabilitation for women with disabilities "I Can!" in Irpin will continue until May 10. You can learn more about the school and how to take part in the training at the link: http://gar.org.ua/ican/...
