【Zimbabwe】Organizing Committee for Promotion of Sports for the Disabled in Zimbabwe
- Japanese Paralympic Committee
In the three years from 2015 through 2017, we sent instructors four times to a Zimbabwean vocational school called Daniko just before the national championships.A comprehensive committee on disabled sports was formed and promotion of those sports in Zimbabwe occurred.
The training included wheelchair basketball, wheelchair tennis, a course on track-and-field practice, a course on repairing wheelchairs, and course related to sports for the disabled. Time was made for exchanges between the teachers and the local instructors, where a foundation for future contact was formed.
The people at the Daniko School, the Zimbabwe Paralympic Committee, the Zimbabwe government and the First Lady agreed that these classes activated the Zimbabwean disabled community as well as the educational and sports worlds.
