Asprodalba march

I MARCHA POR LA INCLUSIÓN PLENA DE LAS PERSONAS CON DISCAPACIDAD.

A MARCH FOR THE FULL INCLUSION OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES.

Asprodalba is one of our closest neighbours. What is Asprodalba? A good question. It was started in 1979 and was the first facility in Andalucia for people with disabilities, mainly learning disabilities. ASPRODALBA offers specialized, comprehensive and personalized attention, maximising the skills and abilities of people, promoting normalization and integration and defending their dignity and rights as citizens.

Amongst other things it offers:

AN OCCUPATIONAL CENTER: where occupational and work skills are worked through with different workshops (ceramics, plastic arts, theater, gardening, computer science, permanent adult education, waiter assistants, etc.) as well as different programs of personal autonomy, social skills, cultural, sports and leisure. Our Finca Arboleda sign was designed and made by Asprodalba many years ago.

A DAY UNIT: for people in need of permanent and widespread support, not limited to a purely assistance work but concerned about developing the potential, skills and abilities to the maximum through different pre-workshops and personalized programs. Has a multisensory room for relaxation and stimulation sessions.

A SHOP: located in the Plaza Mayor de Vera, where artisanal works are displayed and sold in the workshops of the Occupational Center, attended directly by the clients from the center.

See their facebook page here. We are off to support them and and other similar people today. When you come and stay at Finca Arboleda you will pass Asprodalba and now you will know about the great work they do.

Fancy A Yoga Fix On Holiday in Vera?

Fancy A Yoga Fix On Holiday in Vera?

Whether you are experienced in yoga or have just always fancied trying it, why not make it a must do on your holiday.

We have a friend who is a very highly qualified instructor and we can help you with details of where she has her classes in Vera or other places close by. It is also possible that she can visit here and give private tuition under our Orange trees by the swimming pool, sounds idyllic doesn’t it.

If you would like more information just contact us through the web site. I will post more details on this when I have spoken with Ashlí.
