This movie is an activity of the ADDP Japan-TEAM sub grant as part of World Education’s USAID-funded TEAM project (“Para Sports Awareness Raising Program through Development of Wheelchair Basketball in Local Provinces” 1 May 2016 – 31 August 2017). The Aim of the movie is to enable persons with disabilities to be empowered and motivated as sports are a great entry point of social integration for persons with disabilities. In addition, the movie showcases the incredible talents of a male and female player, and depicts a glimpse of what it is like to be an athlete, so that all players appreciate the dedication and hard work it takes to become a great player. The movie should make people feel that ANYONE can be a successful athlete, and convey the message that sport makes people realize their hidden potential and they should believe in the possibility within themselves.
