Basketball wheelchairs to 60 disabled persons Bali

by Yayasan Damai Olahraga Bali


Yayasan Damai Olahraga Bali introduced Wheelchair Basketball to Indonesia .Now looking for more equipment to expand throughout Bali. Bali, and Indonesia as a whole, provides very little, if any, support for people living with disabilities,while Sport in many instances, can provide a disabled person not only with a recreational outlet, but many health benefits, both physical and mental YDOB supports disabled people in their desire to have some form of independence and to live a productive life

People living with disabilities in in Bali have extremely limited facilities,with little or no help from the government . Estimated numbers are difficult as many people living with disabilities are not registered with any organisation and are often confined to their home.


Wheelchair Basketball, as with any sport for those living with disabilities, provides many benefits to individuals and communities. Individuals can participate, learn new skills, develop lasting relationships, integrate with able-bodied athletes, develop team leading skills and further develop their own self-worth and confidence.Not only will the individual benefit but also the families of the individual as they see their loved one moving beyond the confines of their disability .

Long-Term Impact

Balinese are renowned for their sense of family and community but when that community includes a person or people with disabilities often the community is at a loss as to how to help. Once that person participates in a sport, thereby improving their own self-confidence, the community too rises again to support and encourage that individual. BSF believes that the opportunities that sport provides for those living with a disability far outweighs any obstacles that may arise.
