Wohnheim NGG, Gänserndorf
An integrative residential home near Vienna: learning, living, and working together for people with and without disabilities.
"We promote nature-based living, learning and participation for people with disabilities and disadvantages." (Dominik)
Close to Vienna lies the integrative residential home generously designed around the Sonnenfeld eco estate. Young people with mild disabilities learn, practice, and live here together with people with severe multiple disabilities. The vegetables for vegetarian cuisine come from the farm's own production. The new therapy animal farm is an important unifying element. Here, mildly disabled students are trained as animal caretakers. In addition, animal-assisted intervention (TGI) is offered for people with severe disabilities.
To promote an inclusive society, with equal and quality education for people with varying degrees of ability and promote equal opportunities.
