IBSA Blind Football heads to Bosnia and Herzegovina
Date: January 14, 2016
IBSA Blind Football is travelling to Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, this weekend to boost the game in the Balkan region.
As part of the UEFA-funded Development Project Europe, IBSA Blind Football is taking part in a conference for teachers of the blind from all over Bosnia and Herzegovina and neighbouring countries such as Serbia, Montenegro and Croatia. Following the presentations there will be a training session involving local blind and partially sighted children and teenagers.
In addition, there will be meetings with local stakeholders such as the football federation and Paralympic committee, with a view to setting up a sustainable grassroots blind football programme in the country.
IBSA Blind Football has teamed up with Cross Cultures to develop this project. Cross Cultures, like IBSA a UEFA Football and Social Responsibility partner, is a humanitarian project association currently running three different sport and education programmes for children, volunteers and local stakeholders in post conflict countries.
