WHY INCLUSIVE SPORTS MATTER
In Cambodia, children with disabilities are confronted to many challenges including a lack of education, healthcare and are often excluded from the society, kept hidden from others by the parents willing to protect them from abuse, or too ashamed to show that their children have a mental or physical impairment, a strong taboo in this karma-focused society. As a result, children with disability are in deep need of physical and social activities, essential for the children’s development.
OUR SPORTS ACTIVITIES
The blind football trainings with the children of Krousar Thmey Foundation take place every Monday and Wednesday at their school.
The Zumba classes for children with mental disabilities take place every Friday morning at Safe Haven, a medical outreach center.
The wheelchair basketball players meet every Friday between 9am and 5pm to train at the adaptive sports center in Siem Reap.
The rugby trainings take place on Saturday mornings and gather about 50 underprivileged children from Anjali House and Sunrise Cambodia, two local NGOs.
