The Cause

Together to Go Onlus (Tog) was founded in order to create a center for hosting 106 children affected by complex neurological diseases. These children have suffered damage to their Central Nervous System from either genetic diseases, improper prenatal development or birth trauma. They have motor, cognitive, behavioral and communication disorders. Following diagnosis, they need rehabilitation, which is often the only effective cure. Tog creates a customized rehabilitation plan for each child, to help with: movement through physical therapy, communication through speech therapy, better understanding the world through cognitive therapy, and interacting with others through psychomotor training, music therapy and psychological support.

For Tog, the goal is not only to find a cure and help the children develop to their full potential, but to also create a trustful and empathetic environment that helps their families and schools.
