Federation of Adapted Physical Activity - Balkans and Black Sea Area
A brief History
The Federation of Adapted Physical Activity – Balkans & Black Sea Area (FAPABBS) was established in 2015 in Sofia (Bulgaria).
Our organization has the privilege to work with experienced specialists with specific skills and experience such as experts in adapted physical activity, physiotherapists, medical advisors, psychologists, social workers, teachers and professors from the Bulgarian academic circles as well as a big number of volunteers – students from the National Sports Academy “Vasil Levski”, high school students, the “Bulgarian Red Cross” and others.
FAPABBS organizes, promotes and supports all kinds of activities in the field of social integration for people with disabilities. We believe that the sport unites all the people around the world, it is a way to achieve equality and understanding, to establish friendships. This belief is the basis of our vision for integration between children in norm and children with special educational needs. All the initiatives that have been implemented so far are only for the sake of a noble cause – to integrate children with special needs through sport and art.
Since 2015, our Federation has been organizing an Integrated Children’s Sport Festival under the slogan “You are part of us” with the support of the Ministry of Youth and Sport of the Republic of Bulgaria and Sofia Municipality. The festival is focused on the integration of children with disabilities and takes part every year in the beginning of June with the participation of more than 500 children from Bulgaria. Every year different world and olimpic champions attend the event.
