Sports Wheelchair

Shortly after the opening of the wheelchair workshop, we built a sports court for wheelchair basketball in 2013. Since then, pure joie de vivre, energy and team spirit have enriched everyday life in Addis Guzo. The sport is intended to strengthen the participants physically and mentally so that they can better cope with the tasks of everyday life. In close cooperation with the ICRC, we founded two wheelchair basketball teams with about twenty male and fifteen female participants in the meantime. Our two teams participate regularly and very successfully in competitions and have been among the best in the country for years. Weekly practices are led by a team of professional coaches, with and without impairments.
