Challenge

Children with disabilities (CWD) are one of the most vulnerable and underrepresented groups of children in Russia. They still have limited opportunities compared to their peers without disabilities. Opportunities to participate in regular sport activities are practically non-existent. There are still cultural and social perceptions of CWDs as unable to learn or realize their potential and contribute to society.

Solution

provide training and support to teachers to ensure that CWDs can engage in sports with children without disabilities; organize a 3-day sports camp for 100 CWDs and without disabilities; organize regular inclusive sports activities for children; purchase para sports equipment for each school; raise awareness at schools about the diverse abilities of CWDs by organizing disability organize awareness trainings and para sports festivals; advise schools to make their sports programs accessible.

Long-Term Impact

"Children in Motion: Together is Better" will empower children with and without disabilities to play sports together and build new relationships. In the long term, it contributes to the well-being of children with and without disabilities in Russia and their communities.
