Helen Keller International - Physical Education Officer

Starting in 2011, the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture, with the assistance of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), implemented the International Inspiration programme to increase the access to physical education for students with disabilities in schools.   This programme aimed: to provide young people of all abilities with better access to high quality, inclusive physical education, sport and play; to build the skills of teachers and young leaders; to raise the profile of sport; and to increase interest and enthusiasm for sport in the wider community.
