founder

It is not good to be alone, especially when one is in trouble. One can really know one's friends in such situations. It happens that an old group of friends „forget” to invite the person with a disabled child or invite only the person, forcing him/her to make a choice between the child and the friends.
Lord Jesus helped me being in this situation, so I gradually understood that God had entrusted me this child to help me getting closer  to Him. When I realised that it meant a change of a vital importance in my life. Since then I have been looking for the way not only for my son but also for all the persons in similar situation, the possibilities for them to overcome their disabilities.
The Clever Hands Foundation have been offering the basis and frame for our common aims for more than ten years.







Day care centre

   Our work focuses mainly on the occupational therapy (crafts work, making cards etc), physiotherapy and education which aims to develop practical skills (creativity, learning, speaking, manual, psycho-sensorial, logical, social and everyday skills). The young people who come here can feel the joy, emerging from acceptance, attention, respect and love. Besides these, they get the opportunity to make themselves useful, to feel pleased with their handwork and developing also their self-esteem.
   The pottery workshop makes possible the extension of the occupational therapy. The clay is an advantageous material for this purpose: it is natural, inoffensive, soft and with a calming touch and color; it helps to develop the gentle hand movements and concentration; it provides a real experience of success. Since the result is touchable already at the first made piece- this helps the development of self-respect.

   A dance therapy teacher works with the youngsters once a week. She teaches the dances for special occasions. We also have a volunteer music teacher who teaches the songs and accompanies the performances with a guitar.
   The Day Centre provides a protected environment for the young people. Besides, it is very important for disabled people to be involved in society in order to improve the society’s attitude and acceptance of these people.
   To achieve this aim we organize yearly, an Open day with performances and an exhibition with our youngsters’ works.
   We also participate in the programmes organized by the local council every year for Targu- Mures Days.
