Since its inception, interest in the e.motion21 programs has increased dramatically with demand now far outstripping supply. In Victoria alone, the nine sites offering classes only service 4 per cent of the 4 to 40-year-old Down syndrome population.
There is also demand to expand the program interstate with waiting lists of families pleading for e.motion21 to arrive in their community.
Our programs are kept accessible and affordable for participants through a small weekly fee, with the remaining 90% of program funding coming through both in-kind and financial support from private donations, local and national businesses, philanthropic organisations and grants.
In order for us to deliver more dance and fitness programs we need more support. Your generous donation will help us to create a lasting impact on the lives of children and young adults with Down syndrome by:
- offer more programs in the communities that need them most
- train teachers and volunteers to support the dancers
- supply specialised learning equipment.
All donations over $2 are tax deductible – every little bit helps. Any donation you are able to give is greatly appreciated. Please use our secure and simple PayPal system below.
