“Special place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Real great center. See how the disabled people can make all kind of great products like wood carfing, jewelery, sewery. Also the dancing shows are fantastic. Each year we have a great time at the center.

“John G”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

It was marvellous to see the craftsmen at work, the conditions they work in, the tools they use and the end product. You can get the workmans number and buy his work in the shop. The prices are very reasonable. It is well worth a visit.

I was touched by the sheer beauty of the ornaments made from local materials into beautiful jewellery.The people who make this are disabled and it shows that disability is not inability my friends and i had a wonderful time.
