Challenge

People with special needs face many health, social and mobility issues affecting their lives. Regular activity that is specifically adapted to their specific needs can improve their lives drastically. However, there are currently few opportunities and other accessible options to encourage them to maintain a challenging, yet rewarding, training routine, which can be vital to their wellbeing. this population misses out on wonderful opportunities to take part in these life-changing activities.

Solution

Through personalized sports and fitness training programs, people with special needs can live healthier lives and better connect to the community. It allows them to develop their body and mind and gives them the opportunity to live a more independent life, full of exciting new experiences. EITAN! model meets their health needs, equipping them with everything required to teach essential life skills that can be transferred from the field, mat or track to all aspects of the trainees daily lives.

Long-Term Impact

The EITAN! Everybody Can training program currently supports 552 people with disabilities in all over Israel. Our goal is to allow more people in more locations be active and healthy in their daily lives, and more integrated into their communities. We hope all people with disabilities, not matter their age, location, or abilities, can enjoy the highest quality of life.
