Athar (Impact) Initiative

“We were able to face what happened in the war psychologically.”

Sports training enhanced the self-confidence of the beneficiaries, especially with the presence of persons with disabilities who refused to participate and express themselves at the beginning but by the end were fully involved.

“We do not want this training to end, and please invite us to other trainings.” Farah- 18 y/o female beneficiary. “It is true that I am 16 years old, but I am able to achieve effective things.
