ACCESS TO SPORT EDUCATION FOR CHILDREN WITH HEARING OR VISUAL IMPAIRMENT
Improve opportunities for participation in social life through access to sports for children and youth with visual and hearing disabilities in Cambodia.
In Cambodia, physical education and sport are a component of the National Curriculum from grade 1 to 12. However, due to a broad lack of financial and human resources and adequate facilities and equipment, most schools are unable to offer quality sport hours to their students. Even when such activities are available, their access is denied to children with disabilities.
Krousar Thmey has implemented sports courses (rugby, football for the blind, handball, basketball and athletics) and occasional activities with the help of local partners. In order to ensure the safety of children during practice, equipment and facilities are also provided to the schools.
