For 6 April, Umoya Sports will promote UN SDGs 4 and 10 through this event to reduce inequalities.
How will you be celebrating on the day?

Umoya Sports works towards providing holistic development to students with disabilities and building an inclusive sports culture. On the day of the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, we are highlighting the importance of building equal sports opportunities for all by also building community engagement with parents. We are hosting an inclusive sports festival by bringing in parents, school leaders and teachers to spread awareness and breaking the social stigma towards disabilities. Parents and other people without disabilities will be paired along with students with disabilities to participate in sports drills, support each other and also highlight the abilities of students rather than inabilities. We will promote the UN SDG goals 4 and UN SDG 10 through the event to reduce the inequalities. The aim is to build dignity for our athletes and showcase the progress made by the students.

What does 6 April mean to you?

International Day of Sport for Development and Peace is an important day to promote the power of sports in bridging the inequalities in society. This day is even more important for our work since it also aligns with the Autism Month that we are celebrating. International Day of Autism falls on 2 April, so we aim to combine these two important days to spread awareness of our vision of building an 'Inclusive Sports Culture'.
