This year we raised over €25,000 for Warsaw based Protecting Wings to help them convert part of one of their children’s homes into a play area. The works in the basement has already started. A lot was already done and hopefully will be finished in October More pics coming soon!

2016 Charity - MALTA

Our donations of €20,000 helped to fund Inspire’s Winter Programme. This programme targeted children with disability who attend mainstream schools and who follow an adapted school/class. The programme worked on the principle of cooperation between Inspire staff/volunteers and Learning Support Assistants, where together we work hand in hand in supporting children to achieve their individual goals. 
This service was offered free of charge but running it cost Inspire €700 per child. Between September and May around 240 children benefitted from this programme! 

2015 Charity - PORTO
