Families play an important role in society, both in human sustenance and individual development. Sport has tremendous potential for bringing parents and children together in a healthy and playful environment.

Children with disabilities often lead a passive lifestyle due to a lack of adapted sports content and unhealthy nutrition which has negative consequences on their health. Families of children with disabilities are usually not properly instructed in the methods of conducting sports or nutrition by which they could contribute to improving the lives of disabled children.

This project aims to include disabled kids with their family in social life, to improve the quality of their lives, to make them closer with the family, to make them included in sport recreation and consuming healthy diet by creating an environment which enables their development.

As part of the project, families will be educated under the guidance of trainers/coaches, and educational content available on the platform as well as in the manuals on methods of implementing sports for children with various types of physical or intellectual disabilities. By including the whole family in sports activities it promotes a healthy lifestyle for the whole family, makes parents/guardians/siblings more included and active in the life of their family member with disabilities.

Physical activity has proven positive effects on the overall physical, mental, and emotional health of all persons, making it a valuable instrument for raising the quality of life of children with disabilities. By using athletics and swimming we want disabled children aged 6-18 to come together with their parents/guardians/sibling.

Project activities are focused on improving the quality of life of children with disabilities, their families, and actively promoting sports and healthy nutrition as mechanisms through which to reduce the degree of marginalization and improve the conditions for social integration of children with disabilities
