End of May 2020 we received the good news, that our KA-1 project BALL FOR ALL has been approved and its starting date will be the 1st of August 2020. Our international partners in this project are Mreza za Dozivotno Ucenje from North Macedonia and Karabaglar Kaymakamligi from Turkey.
BALL FOR ALL aims to respond to the needs of visually impaired young people to be included in society with their peers, to be equally involved in education, culture, sports, social life, etc. Specifically, during the one week activity of this project that will take place in Cluj-Napoca, we will make the sports game goalball (the most popular ball sport in the world for the visually impaired, which become a Paralympic sport in 1976) to become inclusive, for our mixed international teams of the blind and sighted, girls and boys. The practice of sport will be alternated by debates on topics of interest such as the perception of people with disabilities in society, stereotypes and expectations of / from society, social inclusion.
Given the current situation generated by the Covid-19 pandemic on international level, the date of the project, originally scheduled for the end of October 2020, will be announced later, as soon as the situation allows Babilon Travel, which puts a special emphasis on the health and safety of the participants, to ensure all the general and hygienic-sanitary conditions for this event to take place in complete safety and to be one of great educational and emotional impact on all those included in the project.
We’re looking forward to revert to you soon, announcing the date of the youth exchange.
