A total of Bds. $1.5 million is needed for Special Kids Incorporated to realize its dream of buying the required property.
(PRWEB) March 12, 2013
The number one ABBA tribute band, The FABBAGIRLS, is heading to Barbados to be the star attraction at a show in support of special needs kids in Barbados.
This concert is set for March 23rd, 2013 at The Concorde Experience from 8 p.m. and will also feature Barbados’ newest band Brass Soul.
It will be FABBAGIRLS’ second show in Barbados to benefit The Schoolhouse for Special Needs. The group thrilled a sold out audience on April 9th, 2011 at the same venue, leaving the island buzzing about the performance.
That is why this time around it has been dubbed "Déjà Vu" and the organizers are expecting a good turnout for the highly anticipated event.
$1.5 Million Needed for Schoolhouse
A total of Bds. $1.5 million is needed for Special Kids Incorporated to realize its dream of buying the required property. Three hundred thousand dollars has already been raised for the cause by the Rotary Club of Barbados, which is organizing the concert. The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation is also assisting in this project.
The Schoolhouse for Special Needs was founded in 2006. It was created to provide quality specialized individual programs for children 4 years and older with mild to moderate learning challenges.
Kids attending the program are usually on the autistic spectrum and may be suffering from Downs Syndrome, mild Cerebral Palsy, Asperger Syndrome and a general inability to read and function within the normal school environment.
Children Need More Room
Since opening with just three students, The Schoolhouse for Special Needs now has a roll of 20. However its continued growth is being hindered by its current rented accommodations, which cannot support the increasing requirements for classrooms and physical activity areas.
In addition, the landlords are hesitant to allow any significant changes to the property, such as wheelchair ramps as well as landscaping to allow for games and exercise areas.
The school is therefore faced with the prospect of turning away new students.
The funds raised by the FABBAGIRLS concert are expected to contribute significantly towards the purchase of new accommodations, so the program can continue to welcome all students with special needs.
