What We Do
The Agitos Foundation develops and promotes physical activity and sport for people with a disability as a tool for creating positive social change throughout the world.
It harnesses sport’s unique potential to build confidence, change perceptions and drive social inclusion to improve the lives of the world’s one billion people with a disability.
Overall, the Agitos Foundation plays an important role in sustaining and delivering on the Paralympic Movement’s global objectives: to help create a more inclusive society.
It does this by increasing awareness, forming partnerships and securing the necessary resources to implement programmes covering four key areas:
The Agitos Foundation extends the philosophy of the Paralympic Games, whose athletes are role models of human potential and act as leaders of change.
How Do We Work?
To fulfil its mission Agitos Foundation looks for global and regional partnerships with common strategies, goals and complementary capacities. These partnerships aim to create and promote opportunities to engage in and grow people with a disability.
Using its ever growing knowledge base, decades of experience, resources and global network to other foundations, companies, governments and international bodies, the Agitos Foundation aims to use physical activity and sport as a tool for social inclusion all around the world.
The IPC and the Agitos Foundaton is grateful to all our partners who make our work possible.
