Made for More
15% of the world has some form of disability including physical, intellectual and social disabilities. In Africa alone, there are 90 million people living with disabilities. There is a great need to reach these people who are often looked past or disregarded due to stigma, incorrect thinking and ignorance.
Made for More’s vision is to see people with disabilities included, equipped and empowered to live a life of connection, wholeness, passion and purpose.
Our mission is to break stigma, while empowering people with disabilities to discover their abilities, worth and divine purpose through community, sport, faith, mentorship and community projects.
Made for More’s programme is unique because it focuses specifically on inclusion and using sport as a transformational tool for persons with disabilities.
