We at Tender Hearts are constantly working towards giving opportunities and avenues to people with special abilities to express, explore and have an insight on their own skills, talents and interests.
Most of these children have educational/healthcare facilitiies in the UAE but very less recreational opportunities. Some of these children cannot exceed academically (for various reasons) so recreation is another way to learn new things and to do productive things in life

There are variety of programs provided under safe conditions by specialized trainers such as Yoga, Martial arts, Brain gym , Sports. Creative Art, Dance Music & Theatre , Essential Life skills & Social Communication as well as Behavior modification .
