ADDC Bulletin- Paralympic Games 2012

“There are many ways of bringing people closer together, such as music or culture.

Sport, too, has this unique capacity to transcend barriers.

It is a wonderful equalizer and can certainly place everyone on a level playing field.

Exclusion, in our societies, is not inevitable. We have tools at our disposal and sport is one of them.

Sport can change what communities think and feel about persons with a disability and what persons with a disability think and feel about themselves”.

  (Wilfried Lemke, Special Adviser to the United Nations Secretary-General on Sport for Development and Peace)
