The CNVLD implements a national sports program for Cambodian athletes with a disability including wheelchair racing, volleyball and promotional programs to raise awareness of disability issues.


Landmine survivors and athletes with disabilities in Cambodia participate in programs of team sports and socio-economic assistance. Women with disabilities in Cambodia need support and encouragement to become involved in sports, as well as enter into leadership positions through sports and coaching tenures. The provincial communities that host CNVLD sports teams, therefore assist in fostering social cohesiveness and advancing disability rights within their communities.


Cambodia has over 40,000 landmine survivors. There is a great demand for disability sports programs. The CNVLD is only limited by financial constraints. The more funds we raise, the more sports teams we create and thereby give individuals hope.

Long-Term Impact

To enable more Cambodians with disabilities to join team sport programs in order to become active and contributing members of the Cambodian community through the benefits of participation in physical and social rehabilitation programs of sport.
