REACT: Team Insight helps to take Goalball into rural Ghana!

Since the start of 2017, Team Insight have been working closely with our partners, International Service, in order to create and deliver an innovative project, called REACT, which would introduce Goalball into rural communities in Ghana to help raise visual impairment awareness and promote disability rights.

We took fully sighted and visually impaired volunteers from the UK and Ghana and set them the task of not only teaching different communities about the sport and different disabilities, but they were also asked to develop different ways of creating sustainable equipment and resources so that the communities could continue long after the project was over.

As you can see from the video above, the volunteers and communities embraced this challenge whole-heartedly and managed to obliterate every target that had been set.

Overall, REACT – which was the first project of its kind – was a resounding success and we are thrilled that we were a part of it.
