„I don’t give up!” Foundation (Nem Adom Fel! Alapítvány)
- Labyrinth for the Blind
You have to go through a labyrinth with a white stick and a blindfold; you can meet other people as well.
- Obstacle course for those in wheelchairs
You don’t need to use your legs, just use your hands instead!
- Miracle City
This station presents you the challenges of intellectual disabilities and accompanying disfunctions. An intellectually disabled mayor presents the stations to the visitors.
- Volleyball while sitting
Try to play volleyball while being unable to use your legs!
- TALK AND LIVE! (beszÉLJ!)
Our expert colleagues having multiple disabilities don’t use their voice for communication – they use their fingers, their head pointers and a board with letters and words. However, they love to talk and getting to know new faces – you should meet them, too!
- Painting with mouth and toes
Try how to paint without your hands – with your mouth and toes! While painting, you can meet real artists who create their paintings with this technique!
- Sport in a different way
How do the disabled do sports? At this stage, you can try bowling, boccia, petanque and other different sports.
- Siamese wheelchair
This is an unconventional but very funny station, where your task is to try to move two joined wheel chairs with your partner.
- A different walk
Sensing the world barefoot – this is what A DIFFERENT WALK is about. Try to guess what type of surface you are on while walking!
- What do my hands see?
Our visually impaired experts acquaint you with the basics of Braille, and if you wish, they present you with handmade products, too. For the latter, you need to wear a blindfold to make the experience more interesting. At the end of the station, you can prepare a surprise bracelet, also blindfolded.
Talking Hands Cultural and Educational Association
Can you imagine the world without voices and sounds? Would you be crushed if you couldn’t hear the voice of your favourite singer? Well, we are not crushed at all! Come and experience that the world can be a whole without voices and sounds, too!https://facebook.com/beke2005

Paraktiv Integrating Foundation
We think that accessing sports is not always easy for the disabled. Our foundation tries to help in this, trying to get more and more disabled people to get involved in the world of sports. We would like to spread the word, provide space for doing sports together, a meeting point between disabled and non-disabled. We would like to reach our goals mainly with the help of para-sportsmen, because they are the most authentic people in this! Activities at Sziget: • sports for wheelchair teams (basketball, handball, rugby) • fencing • darts • powerlifting, arm wrestling • yoga, mediball • special wheelchair gears • spéci kerekesszékes hajtányokparaktiv.hu facebook.com/paraktiv
