A beach fest for differently-abled

Led by UMOJA, the first platform for accessible travel in India, the NGO ADAPT (Able Disabled All People Together) and the Goa Tourism Department’s organisation Drishti, made Candolim beach in Goa wheelchair-accessible during the recently held the Goa Beach Fest. The festival allowed people with disability to engage in water sports like aquatic beach chair, beach bowling, board games, wheelchair cricket, kite flying, sand castle competitions, and wheelchair dancing.
 UMOJA has filed an online petition to the state government of Goa to make at least one beach easily accessible for people with disabilities.
