Wheelchair Rugby Initiative

Wheelchair Rugby is a completely new concept in disability sports in Kenya, generally a reserve of male participants in other parts of the world. Based on the simplicity of the game itself, the high energy yield and competition, the camaraderie, and the lack of wheelchair sports that are open to able bodied members of the society in Kenya, we founded the "Women & Wheels project" which has teams of disabled and non-disabled women in wheelchairs interacting together in an intense, energized competitive sport. The project is inclusive as teams of both disabled and non-disabled women were all in wheelchairs, participating in wheelchair rugby. We created a fun avenue for women with and without disabilities to interact in an effort to dispel the stigma and discrimination associated with disabilities while creating an avenue for inclusive sport and recreation.
