The ski resorts of the Conca will be open for three hours, from 8 pm to 11 pm, to raise funds for the “Cascina Aquilone” to build a home for children with serious disabilities.
The Cascina Aquilone association started five years ago by a group of families and sector operators. Starting from a motto: dignity in disability. Now the goal of families and operators is to shape a structure – a real home, they say – where adolescents and adults with psychophysical and behavioural difficulties can find a place for therapeutic, recreational and work activities in their impossibility of approaching to the world of work and to be self-employed. Because that’s what’s missing.
The “family of the farmhouse” welcomes them and supports them with educators, psychologists and volunteers who help them on a path of growth. Some are accompanied to sensitive companies that employ them. But there is also space for leisure activities: such as travel and camping.
Now the promoters of Cascina Aquilone have identified a building in Castagnole delle Lanze, where the Langhe hills become Monferrato, which must be renovated and adapted to offer the children of the community a safe place to be “grown up” away from their parents.
For this we need funds. This is why an initiative such as the special night at Prato Nevoso – where you can already ski at night on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays – is what you need: to collect contributions to shape the kite farm. It will be a very special night.
