In order to grow into a society which practices, reaches and implements policies where every individual has equal rights and opportunities regardless of their diversity, integration of disabled people into such society is emerging as one of the solutions to enable its growth. Social inclusion does not imply equalization of all people, but respecting the differences of each individual. Developing tolerance allows expansion of perspective, gaining experiences and developing of the human personality.
Guided by our motto "DO NOT CALL ME SPECIAL! DIFFERENT DOES NOT MEAN IMPOSSIBLE!“ we use sport as one of the ways in which children and young people with disabilities can be active while developing their talents and capabilities, and by doing so successfully engage into everyday activities. To achieve this mission, we also got help from our partners which include Faculty for physical education and sport in Tuzla and Center for sport University of Tuzla.
The competition will be organized in four sports: athletics, swimming, basketball and football. Each competition will be organized in three divisions depending on the degree disabilities. Athletics and swimming, will be organized in the men's and women's categories.
