New spaces of involvement education independence

Hi-Ability adopts an original methodological approach, where the therapeutic-rehabilitation programme focuses on the socio-educational value of the natural environment.

The general objective is to promote the empowerment and the social inclusion of people with cognitive disabilities, by enhancing their abilities in the field of outdoor touring and hiking.

How did Hi-Ability come about ?

Very often, social and cultural interventions aimed at the integration of people with disabilities tend to segregate the beneficiaries, as they are provided within protected, "closed" contexts, taking place in a perspective of “assistance" and isolation.

This has negative consequences on the perception of disability towards society and a misreading of the real needs of people with disabilities.

Hi-Ability wants to "open the doors to new spaces of education", promoting an education for autonomy, independent and inclusive life, in a context still not very accessible such as hiking and eco-tourism.

An enviroment where it is possible to equalize the differences and highlight everyone's professional skills
