Who we are

We are a registered community based organization in Uganda with registration number CDR/804B, we use sports as a platform for social inclusion, through advocacy and creating awareness on disability to the general community.

We foster reverse inclusion where  children and youth with disabilities are given opportunity to take full responsibilities to include their peers in different sporting and creative arts activities to enhance their social well being, talent development, physical and mental health development.

We are creating social change through sports, we believe that if an individual or a team experiences how is like to sit on a wheelchair and play wheelchair basketball, wheelchair cycling or play games for the blind like goal ball, showdown when they are blind folded,   they will  develop empathy to replace the pity, develop positive attitudes to replace the cultural and superstitious believes towards disability hence reducing societal stigma and systematic discrimination.

Vision

Mission

ACTIVITIES

Physical Literacy

Physical literacy is the motivation an individual has that leads one to become physically competent, enduring, and confident. It also demonstrates knowledge about one’s own physical and mental health. To be physically literate means that you own your well-being through life. We give opportunity to children with disabilities to gain self reliance/daily leaving skills of wheeling, dressing, washing, playing and interacting.

Physical literacy gives opportunity to our children to  be able to.  Throw an object, hope/jump, run/wheeling, catch/grab and kicking/shooting basing on these activities we shall clearly know what type of games a disabled child can play.
