Mercedes-Benz: Laureus World Sports Awards.

Many Indian children with handicaps are excluded from education, health services, transport or jobs. The IMAGE project in partnership with Laureus has brought these young people greater integration, education and prospects for their future. Non-handicapped young people visit handicapped young people at schools and do sport with them, help each other and learn from one another. Cricket, table tennis, volleyball, basketball – the children seize every opportunity. Sport takes them forward and integrates them into society. They are no longer vilified – they are now known as the “bhaiyas” and “diddis” (the brothers and sisters) of IMAGE.
