This space is intended for people who are admitted to the institution that come from the ICBF and who, because of their disability, have not had the opportunity to access formal education programs. According to Luz Janeth Bernal, Internship Coordinator, Happiness Hall aims to "reforce basic cognitive abilities", "it was created with an atmosphere that allows a neurological awakening" for the beneficiaries, who are "those people who have moderate cognitive disabilities”. Among the advantages that this space has for the beneficiaries is the interest in working on visual or auditory stimulation, memory or attention, evoking events, the association of colors and numbers with learning, and the identification of animals and everyday objects, among others. The Coordinator affirms that they can recognize "all they would be in contact with on a day-to-day basis ... very basic aspects, but if this strategy were not there, it could not be done."maxresdefault The Happiness Project is led by Psychology, and for its activities it has the support of professionals in different areas that can meet the needs of the beneficiaries. This space went into operation in early 2017, and was made possible by a donation.
