Our biggest project is: The School of Celia & Pepe, located in Madrid, Spain. This is a unique school specialized in kids with special needs, most of them with rare diseases and language disorders. We are proud to welcome 37 girls and boys, aged from 4 to 18 years, for the coming school year 2023-2024. We will ensure inclusive and equitable quality education for each of them, providing specialized programs that will help them flourish to their full potential.

In general, there are at least 2 kids with learning difficulties in each school classroom. This is in many cases, due to a language disorder that has not been diagnosed. Language disorders have direct consequences for our cognitive and social development, and our ability to learn. In the case of rare diseases, making decisions on treatments and strategies of education, is even more challenging, confronting medical professionals and teachers in special education daily. We have a solution.


The Celia and Pepe School, is an inclusive and holistic school. We have adopted and adapted several teachning methodologies and have in addition, incorporated the Spanish national educational standards, so our kids learn geography, math, language and even English, all of it in a way they are able to understand. Since 2018, we provide education, therapy and also scientific studies all in one, to all our kids with no public funding. Teachers, families and doctors work together for each kid.

Long-Term Impact

Our school has showcased that there is a big difference between providing the same educational opportunities to all - meaning giving everybody the same tools to learn-, and providing equitable educational opportunities to all - meaning giving each one the specific tools they need to learn. Until today, already 10 children have returned into ordinary school, after spending only two or three years with us. Many kids flourish at the Celia and Pepe School like they dont do in other schools.
