Amadip Esment Foundation

Amadip Esment Foundation is a non-governmental organisation set up in 1962 and declared of Public Interest by the Council of Ministers in 1966. It works to help people who are mentally disabled, and their families, to enjoy and improve their quality of life and have the same opportunities as everyone else. It provides support in the areas of assessment, guidance at educational centres, housing and homes, day care, leisure and sport, as well as a service to help families.

Esment acts as the umbrella for all the organisation's commercial activities, which aim to create and maintain stable jobs for mentally disabled people. It competes under the same conditions as other companies in the market and offers good quality products and services. The wide range of activities carried out means that more jobs are available and positions can be more in line with people's different requirements and skills.
