Mirora, Hand in Hand with AYDER
Since 2005, Mirora has continually supported the Alternative Life Association (AYDER) which was established to accomplish its mission on the road to “Turkey without Disability” by offering alternative solutions for the disabled and all disadvantaged groups in “Disability” situations and producing innovative and sustainable projects. It has been transformed into a platform which will reintegrate a large number of disabled and socially disadvantaged groups into the economy as both producers and consumers. While most foundations try to develop products after their establishment, AYDER has become a society to streamline the works performed since 1997 under a single roof. AYDER, founded in 2002, has implemented products such as “Diving is Freedom” and “Alternative Camp” which had an overwhelming response in 1997. AYDER has planned and implemented many innovative projects such as “Reha Istanbul Fair” in 2004, “Tourism without Disability” in 2006, and “Dreams Academy” in 2008.
AYDER is the first non-governmental organization to sign the “Global Compact” of the United Nations.
Our dear old friend and founder of Dreams Academy,
Ercan Tutal says:
“…Do the blind dream? They do… Those who lose their dreams actually become blind!!..”
Life fades away where dreams evanesce… / Raison d’être of the human being is lost… / And life becomes a flow from dreams to reality; a dark flow for some or a radiant one for others… / Swift and inevitable.
Dreams Academy has become a permanent alternative arts and culture academy preparing young people for life. Please visit the Dreams Academy website for detailed information on their projects.
