WHAT WE DO
Gulu - Northern Uganda
BlazeSports International, in partnership with the Uganda Paralympic Committee (UPC), are leading a 36-month sport development and health project in Kampala and Gulu called USAID’s Sports for Youth with Disabilities Initiative. The overall project goal is to contribute to the improved physical literacy of children with physical disabilities from 2-18 years, especially girls, living in Kampala and Gulu.

This is a growing movement across the globe linked to better health, prevention of chronic health conditions, and improved lifelong physical activity.
