Therapeutic football workshop in Bangalore E-mail

During a five-day workshop in Bangalore, India, in April, teachers and coaches received professional training in how to use sports in general, and football in particular, as a means of rehabilitating people with disabilities.

Entitled “Game of Life”, the workshop was organised by the Israeli Consulate in Bangalore and MASHAV in co-operation with Israeli NGO Mifalot and the Rotary Club. Mifalot is an organisation whose mission is to lead social change and development through sports.

The Game of Life methodology uses sports as a platform for promoting self-confidence, trust and mutual engagement. It involves activities on the field, using football drills and other sports that require interaction between the players. The idea is to connect exercise to life itself. The training reinforces the importance of communication and why it is important for people to work together as a team to achieve certain goals that will enhance the overall performance of individuals.
