USAID Sports for Youth with Disabilities In Uganda Initiative
USAID’s Sports for Youth with Disabilities Initiative is a 36-month sport development and health project in Kampala and Gulu. The project’s goal is to contribute to the improved physical literacy and the increased inclusion of children with physical disabilities in sport and recreation programs in the community. Physical literacy is the ability, confidence and desire to be physically active for life. This is a growing movement across the globe linked to better health, prevention of chronic health conditions, and improved physical activity.
Call To Action
One of the major project deliverables was a Call to Action document that provided key strategies for key sectors/actors within Uganda that can improve access to sport and physical activity for Uganda children and youth with disabilities especially girls. Thank you to all the organizations that contributed to this document especially the Uganda Paralympic Committee.
