Project Description: 

UNESCO NatCom and HOPE'87 Moldova are working to create equal opportunities in sports and recreational activities for children in Republic of Moldova. The overall aim: to ensure the possibility of children (including handicapped) to enjoy and engage in sports and recreational activities in a safe and healthy environment. 

The purpose of this project is to identify and develop the children's physical capacities and talents with limited health capacities. The goal is to eliminate the children's problems that relate to their missing motor skills, improve their health and facilitate their social integration efficiently into their society. 

By training coaches and participating trainers, as well as providing and maintaining sports equipment, 250 children (including those that are handicapped) can participate in a sporting event. This is a great way for children, especially the handicapped, to engage in their community and have an equal opportunity to become physically active in a well-managed environment.
