Fighting prejudices against blind and visually impaired people


Network Member

Urece was founded in 2005 by athletes with disabilities and their trainers, with the objective of improving the conditions for blind and visually impaired people in the sports sector.


The organisation believes in the power of para-sports as a tool to promote social inclusion as well as the professional and personal development of its members, and to fight prejudices and discrimination.

The organisation does not only provide opportunities for blind and visually impaired people to participate in football activities, but also runs awareness raising workshops to abolish prejudices.

Since the very beginning, Urece has been run by a team composed of people with and without disabilities, and has received national and international recognition for its innovative work in Brazil.
