To Able, to Appreciate, to Accept and to Aspire: Embracing
difference for the better
No matter disabilities are visible or invisible, they are often labeled
and seen as weaknesses or disadvantages; subsequently it becomes a burden and depreciate one’s self-value. In MAO, we recognize, celebrate and honor differences,
for every one of us is unique in this world, even you are one of the twins.
“Differently-able” is the term we focus. In MAO, children with special
educational needs are here under guidance to build their self-value and
confidence through music. Gaining experience outside classroom of ordinary
setting, we are to aspire them by widening their horizon and that of their families
and unfold what these special group of young people could have achieved beyond
We gather these special children with similar interest and passion to
provide training and opportunities. We are here to embrace differences for
creating a better world and aspire to bring a positive impact to society, taking
disability from a different perspective.
