Youths Post-rehab Sport Activation
After rehabilitation or treatment in hospitals young people with disabilities often could not engage in many sports due to their physical limitations related to their illness or disability. This gives rise to certain psychological problems, reduced self-esteem and self-confidence. We want to enable young people with disabilities to participate equally in sports activities, taking into account their health condition.
