The project will be implemented in Ukraine, Zhytomyr city, Public organization (NGO) «Zhytomyr Regional Fund of Social Protection of Disabled People» and Belarus, Gomel city. In both cities clubs «Freedom» (Ukraine) were created and «Together we can all» (Belarus).

  • To go for sports, tourism, to study cultural heritage, folk-crafts
  • united to create the network of clubs in district centers, that will help to enrich the knowledge and experience to them, communicating from each other
  • to unite resources for development and collaboration, for the physical, social and psychological rehabilitation of people with disability, for integration of them in general social environment.

Unfortunately, in Ukraine there are not many organizations that is ready to help people with disability. For this reason, our aim, that people with disability could break all barriers round itself, lived by full life and enjoyed from him.

At this stage clubs have already been established and operate in both countries.

In Ukraine there are 6 active groups: checkers, chess, bocce, table tennis, billiards, arm-wrestling, as well as psychological and legal advice.

In Belarus there are 7 active groups: dancing in wheelchairs, basketball, arm-wrestling, wheelchair athletics, swimming, bocce, table tennis.

People with disabilities integrate into tourism through alloys on kayaks, which were conducted already 30 times..

At this time, we have trips on quad bikes through the endless and beautiful forests of Eastern Europe..
