The Ministry of Youth and Sport will now be able to promote physical activities and inclusive sports participation for persons with disabilities.

This after their increased budget for the year 2017-2018 provided an allocation of $120,000 grant upon request to promote sports for persons with disabilities.

Assistant Minister for Youth and Sports Iliesa Delana, said this new initiative will harness social inclusiveness through sports. Furthermore, he said it will encourage mainstreaming of sports for people with disability into an able body and hearing federations.

Mr Delana said this would certainly complement the proposed legislation and UN convention with the rights for persons with disabilities.
