Sport 4 Socialisation UK (S4S UK)

S4S UK works to improve lives of children with disabilities and their families in Zimbabwe. Children with disabilities are often hidden, locked up and isolated from society. They find their rights being violated. S4S provides opportunities for inclusion in education, healthcare (physiotherapy, medication, assistive devices) and runs community programmes, like an adapted physical activity with a life skills programme. The caregivers of the children are supported with training and small-scale livelihood projects. Through these programme their chances in life increase significantly and children have a chance to become equal members in society.
