A year later with pride and satisfaction we celebrate the success, hopes, inspiration and the unique feeling of being useful and enticed by the happy smiles of the sunny children and their parents. Stepping toward the creation mission to help and include children and young people with special educational needs, we firmly believed in the power of music and the human spirit.

With pride we mark the impressive results from the program, we enjoy the positive changes, we filmed our fist video with Hrisi /who has the Down Syndrome/.
