The “Wings of Happiness” for children from Starye Dorogi!

On October 20, in the city of Starye Dorogi, within the charity project “Wings of Happiness”, our company opened special adaptive playground, as well as an inclusive space where workshops for special children will work.

An adaptive playground for children, located on the territory of the “Nursery-kindergarten No. 1 in Starye Dorogi”, is equipped with special swings, training simulators, playground complexes and boards, touch sensor flower tables, sandboxes and a cocoon chair, and it meets all safety standards and requirements.

In addition to the playground based on an inclusive space, an art studio was also opened, where under the guidance of a creative teacher, boys and girls with special needs will reveal their talents, discover various applied art techniques and communicate with each other.

«Starye Dorogi is the second city where the social project “Wings of Happiness” has been implemented. The first was Vileyka, where our creative workshops with an inclusive playground for children have been working for three years, – explained Natalia Ryzhenkova, the head of SK hynix memory solutions Eastern Europe. – During this time, we have seen that activities in classes as well as on playgrounds bring very good results – boys and girls become more open, courageous, they fully develop their potential and have positive changes that are happening in front our eyes. When teachers note how much progress their pupils make, it motivates us to move on. We believe that both the playground and the art studio will help children from Starye Dorogi open up and, possibly, find their passion in life. In addition, next year we plan to open several more clubs there so that children can choose an activity that they like. Moreover,  inclusive spaces both in Vileyka and in Starye Dorogi can be used as platforms where teachers from different regions of the districts can meet and exchange experience, expand their expertise in working with special children.»
