NUMICONThe Inspire Foundation and The Farsons Foundation have recently teamed up to reach a mutual goal – that of facilitating the understanding of mathematical concepts for children who have difficulties in the area.

The Farsons Foundation will be funding the training for another staff member from Inspire to become a certified Numicon Trainer by Oxford University Press (OUP). This will ensure high quality training that is later delivered to professionals and parents which will enable them to help children reach their potential. “Teachers who attend Numicon workshops have a much higher multiplier effect as they are then able to share their knowledge with their entire class. At the moment more than 500 children are benefitting from this multisensory programme that is being used as a whole class approach in their schools,” added Ms. Gatt.

The Farsons Group has always recognised its corporate responsibility towards all stakeholders and the wider community, having long supported a number of deserving initiatives and charitable causes. Through this initiative The Farsons Foundation is addressing an educational objective within the context of social solidarity.

The Inspire Foundation on the other hand works with children with learning difficulties, disabilities and socially excluded youngsters who are failing in their education because of lack of resources and opportunities to learn.

“In order to make things happen for people with disabilities, and in order to make them happen fast, we need many people and organisations to work together. Corporations that embrace the benefits of cooperating with one another, can help make this world a better place,” said Mr. Antonello Gauci, CEO, Inspire.

“Change is effectively impossible without such collaboration and cooperation,” said Mr Bryan A. Gera, Chairman of The Farsons Foundation. “We are therefore extremely happy to be able to collaborate with entities such as The Inspire foundation to reach out to children and people who need help,” added Mr. Gera.
