Over 30 years now, the Vicente Ferrer Foundation, together with its local counterpart RDT, started the program for people with disabilities. The objective is to build a project for the future that ensures equal opportunities for this group, offering the tools for its own development towards economic autonomy and a fair social status. This includes education from primary school to vocational and university degree.
