FROM THE CEO’S DESK

Special needs individuals want nothing but acceptance with no conditions attached. That’s what we at ICanFlyy aim at. Here the focus is on giving every student a space where he or she will be accepted, appreciated, and educated. In an era of challenges and cut-throat competition, it’s our aim to enable our students to face the world with self-confidence and honesty. In addition to vocational training, we aim at overall holistic development where physical, mental, and aesthetic aspects are addressed.

Training special needs students is complex and our team of experienced, skilled, and passionate special educators and vocational trainers rise to the challenge every time. They are not only teachers, but also friends, philosophers and guides. We hope to keep flying higher and higher to reach new heights in the field of skill building and vocational training for special needs individuals.
