On October 21st, as part of the annual leadership conference Flight Centre Travel Group, in coordination with Olympus Tours Foundation offered a day of volunteer work to improve the space of the Association of Parents with Mentally Handicapped Children in Cancun (APAFHDEM).The Association provides occupational opportunities to mentally disabled young- adults in Cancun promoting their full development and integration as productive members of society. 65 product managers from around the world joined efforts to paint part of the spaces where piñata making workshops are held.
The enthusiastic executives also donated raincoats, waist bags, board games and a significant amount of material to paint and improve the basketball court of APAFHDEM. To show their gratitude the disabled young taught their visitors how the piñatas are made in a very pleasant atmosphere.
This activity demonstrates that the language barrier is not an obstacle when the goal is to share smiles and help others.
