The Mentelity Foundation and Dutch Foundation for “Het gehandicapte kind” (disabled child) have a similar drive. Giving people with a physical challenge control of their own lives back. And inspire them to look at the possibilities instead of the limitations”
The Snowstar program makes it possible for children with a physical challenge to enjoy winter holidays with their parents, brothers, sisters and friends. The clinics and activities are focused on going on ski trips together, for the kids with and without challenges.
The Snowstar program supports associations and ski slopes in the process of creating a program for people with a physical challenge. Besides that Snowstar helps with the announcement of new programs and revalidating centers. Because of this people with a physical challenge get the opportunity to go on ski trips with their families again.
In order to accomplish this, the Mentelity Foundation will organize snowboard classes on sunday mornings. During the Mentelity Wintersport Days children and adults can familiarize themselves with the advantages of winter sports. During these days the kids and parents will be informed about the possibilities and opportunities for classes and slopes available in The Netherlands or participation in organized trips to the snow.
