The menu’s got a makeover and a number of yummilicious additions!

Burger lovers can now rejoice as they’ve introduced a whole burger section and Maggi fans who dare should try the Spicy Schezwan Maggi. And for the adventurous foodie, Café ICanFlyy is the first to bring to Kolkata Cheese Tea.

ICanFlyy Launches Three New Programs

ICanFlyy, a vocational skill building institute for special needs children and adults, is introducing Early Intervention and Pre-vocational programs. For the past two years ICanFlyy has been successfully running a vocational program for special needs young adults aged 15+. The new sections will cater to special needs children between the ages of six and fourteen.

In a regular classroom environment, children learn at different rates, some slower than others due to learning difficulties. To help such school students with additional learning needs, ICanFlyy has also introduced a one-on-one Academic Assistance program.
