The Salva Vita Foundation publishes a national call for tender for youngsters between 10-19 years of age – called HIGHFIVE! The aim of the tender is to facilitate personal encounters between youngsters and disabled people.
Applicant students and their teachers are asked to organise joint programs with disabled people. Any kind of program is welcome where they can spend some time together and get an insight into each other’s daily lives. The ideal program is imaginative and attractive for both sides.
A successful program helps to slough ones prejudices and fears and can form the attitudes of students for the rest of their lives. We hope that the youngsters who participate in the program will become open, responsibly-minded, empathic members of our society.
The jury selects the 50 most interesting applications and supports their implementation. The applicant teams need to document their program and prepare a final application.
Applications need to be loaded on the program website. The 10 best applications will be awarded at the HIGHFIVE Award Gala in November.
Our partners in the program are: ELTE Bárczi Gusztáv Special Education Faculty and
Council of Advocacy Organisations of Disabled People
Sponsor of the program is the Szerencsejáték Zrt. (Hungarian National Lottery)
