Our Purpose

According to WHO “more than a billion people in the world today experience disability. These people generally have poorer health, lower education achievements, fewer economic opportunities, and higher rates of poverty. This is largely due to the barriers they face in their everyday lives, rather than their disability. 

Disability is not only a public health issue but also a human rights and development issue.”

At Labyrinth of Senses, we believe in a world where diversity, equality, acceptance, and respect prevail.

In 2014 a disability awareness workshop came to life, inspired by Gabriela Telekfalvi aiming to tackle the lack of education around disabilities and help people with and without disabilities interact with each other.

“We aim to provide interactive education on all types of disability, that at the same time empower critical thinking, creativity, and interaction between people with and without disability.”

We believe that the disability itself does not cause major barriers, it is the society that is not ready yet the accept all people regardless of their background, social status, ethnicity, age, educational level, the
existence or absence of a disability. This is what we try to tackle”

The Team

Gabriela Telekfalvi – Sparks’ Founder She is a Business Administration graduate from the University of West Attica. In 2014, through her experience in organizing voluntary events all around Greece, she started dreaming of a different future, where everyone would have the chance to interact with each other, in a safe environment, using non-formal education methods. As a result she created Labyrinth of Senses. She believes that in embracing the diversity of human beings, we will find a surer way to true happiness.
