Stimulating the senses can open up the door to learning. The people with disabilities who attend Fundación Inspire's multi-sensory rooms can touch, hear, see and move by controlling their environment. These are sensations that they might be feeling for the first time in their lives.
This country, made up of the islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino and other uninhabited islets, is the smallest in the European Union. With less than half a million inhabitants, it is also the most densely populated. Its strategic location in the middle of the Mediterranean has meant that throughout its history it has been dominated by Aragonese, French and British forces.
The Fundación Equal Partners is running a project helping 184 children with disabilities and their families through comprehensive education, in order that they can be in control of their lives in Valleta, Malta.
