Mostly we have children with down syndrome, children with cerebral palsy and children from low-income families. These are children who never went to any clubs, they first came to us, and we try to help them to show their talents. They also want to be a star. When they come here and see a full house for them is a tremendous joy, because they can give a piece of their hearts to the audience, and the audience they in return can give the applause they need”.
