An Inclusive Fun Day organized by the Bethlehem Sports Club of the Disabled (BSCD) PDF Print E-mail

 

The Bethlehem Sports Club of the Disabled  (BSCD), supported by the FFVI and BASR, organized an inclusive fun day on Sunday 14th April 2013 for all its members comprising young people with visual impairment, those with physical disabilities and those without disabilities as well as a visiting group of young people from UNRWA girls school in Sour Baher in Jerusalem, totaling 80 participants.

On this day, the participants were engaged together in fun activities such as singing, playing musical instruments and games eg. Dominos, Chess, Bingo, etc. The UNRWA school girls also performed folkloric dances which all enjoyed. All participants mingled together and socialized, sharing their personal experiences, challenges and aspirations in a positive and relaxing environment.

Such activities foster mutual respect of diversity and promote the inclusion of people with disabilities in leisure and recreation; an aspect of life where people with disabilities lack opportunities for participation.
