Project overview

It is estimated that there are over 300,000 people with disabilities in Rwanda. Many thousands are amputees having suffered from years of war. This project gives around 300 young people with disabilities the opportunity to access sport and recreational activities while raising awareness of the rights of people with disabilities. Where possible, the activities are also open to their peers without disabilities to try to bridge the gap between the two groups. The project is run by the National Paralympic Committee of Rwanda.
