Estel supports the project WOW-Wheels On Waves: a dream by the sailor Andrea Stella founder of “Lo Spirito di Stella” association.The WOW’s ambitious scope is to spread across the United States and to Europe a message of peace and respect for individuals with disabilities through two fundamental documents: the ONU Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Follow WOW on Facebook @WheelsOnWaves.
Estel is among the sponsors of WOW – Wheels On Waves, the first catamaran without architectural barriers in the world, that represents the celebration of “diversity”.
Before sailing from New York, last May 26th, the Secretary-General gave to Andrea the UN Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities, signed in his own hand, to seal an important document, already ratified by 166 Nations, but not enough well known yet.
This document will be kept inside the catamaran, during the entire journey that begins this week from New York and will arrive in Rome, in September. At this last stage, WOW team will consign the Convention to Pope Francis.
The WOW expedition challenge is to increase the awareness of the importance of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
