Challenge

Currently, people with disability is hardly appear in any sports game. Though we have special games for people with disability around the world, but it's only for professional athletes. Thousands of physical(and mental) impaired people around the city could not attend sports activity freely & conveniently. Even, some of them is hardly to get out of door because of accessibility's absent, for example, visually impaired people. This situation even impacted their health condition.

Solution

We organize a wide range of events, to allow everyone to experience the benefits that so many of us are able to take for granted. To raise the awareness of the needs of people who are visually impaired or otherwise unable to benefit from or access sport as a means of fitness, fulfillment or engaging in the community. The changing is from mind, from majority of the society.

Long-Term Impact

We hope to bring positive influence to the society through our effort, spreading the ideas of "Integration, equality and diversity", implementing "Disabled Equality" and " Sports Accessibility ", eliminating prejudices, changing public opinions and finally create value for the whole society.
