Piña Palmera - Zipolite, Mexico

Piña Palmera is committed to an inclusive and socially just world in which people with impairments/disabilities have the same opportunities for participation as people without impairments/disabilities. In this way, families are also taken into account and the various competences of the target group of people with impairments/disabilities are strengthened. In addition to the focus on the target group itself, the environment and society are also sensitised and trained for the rights of people with impairments/disabilities.
