Sport together, active forever (STAF)

Sport activities have become a priority at the EU level view. We invitate the challenge (mental disabilities) and non-challenge persons to the bocce game.

Nowadays the sedentary, obesity, diabetes and other health disorders have affected more and more persons. At the same time, the people are very busy with their jobs and they spend their spare time in an inactive way. More, challenged persons are excluded and have less access to social life together with the non-disabled people.
Therefore, the practicing of the physical exercises and sport activities together have become a priority at the level of European Union which has mentioned that in its paper.
The project has in view to inform the challenge (mental disabilities) and non-challenge persons (trainers, parents, social assistant, volunteers, a.o.) about the bocce game and rules and give to them to practice together. All of these will be done so that disabled and non-disabled persons to spend in their free time in a pleasant manner with direct effects on their life and health. In these conditions, the project offers the opportunity of the mental disabled persons and their volunteers to promote equal and social inclusion, to respect the rights of all the people and to allow them to develop their personal and professional competences. Besides, the project tries to change mentalities about a disadvantaged group of the persons and to underline and promote their abilities not their disabilities.
