THE project Learning together, started by the Iberostar Foundation, will try to integrate handicapped children by making people aware of their problems with guides for teaching staff, families and pupils. This initiative has the collaboration of the Sa Nostra Foundation and the Balearic Ministry of Education and Culture, through the department for Planning, Innovation and Training of Teaching Staff. According to Fernando Martos, the Iberostar group delegate, there will be television advertisements as well to publicise the campaign, which also has the collaboration of the patrons of the project, the tennis player Rafael Nadal and the swimmer Xavi Torres. Martos said that 200'000 guides had been produced which would be distributed in 360 education centres in the Balearics and will reach 86'000 pupils and more than 5'000 teachers in the islands. He repeated that society is becoming more open all the time, although he insisted that it is still necessary to encourage the values of tolerance and respect for differences. He added that the project will also have a part called leisure and playtime and will consist of open days, excursions, drawing competitions, magic shows and an infants concert, among other activities.
