Tambien Foundation

 

Welcome to the También Foundation website, from which you can access information about who we are, who we cater for, what we do, which activities we carry out and how to cooperate with us.

Who are we?



También Foundation is a non-profit organization whose aim is the social integration of people with any physical, mental, intellectual or sensory disability, by means of tailoring sport to disabled people's needs, using it as a social integration tool. Implementing a system like this provides enjoyment and many important physical and mental benefits.

 

This pioneering project for adapting sport to disabled people`s needs was born in 2001, when Teresa Silva (founder and managing director of También Foundation), had a paragliding accident and, as a consequence, has used a wheelchair ever since. It was then when she realised the difficulties faced by disabled people in filling up their spare time with leisure activities.

Who would benefit?



People with any physical, mental, intellectual or sensory disability, in order to:

  • Foster social inclusion
  • Strengthen personal development and self-esteem
  • Boost fighting spirit and team work
  • Stimulate self-discipline
  • Provide physical and psychlogical benefits
  • Create a feeling of freedom
  • Improve quality of life

What do we do?



  • Design courses, activity programs and sporting events.
  • Provide adapted material to meet all kinds of disability needs.
  • Advise and provide technical assistance to disabled people, their families,  associations, institutions or companies.
  • Subsidize all sporting programs run by También Foundation.
  • Train volunteers and professional specialists.
  • Spread and promote adapted sports.
