We work closely with local partner organizations that know the region, schools and culture of the community.

The cooperation with our Sports and play coordinators that live and work in the school areas is a crucial success factor for our work. The schools have a direct point of contact when support is needed with the implementation of the Sports and play program. And Join for Joy has the ability to keep a close eye on the progress of the schools so that we can quickly respond or adjust our activities when needed.


Parent involvement is very important too. They are the ones that can put pressure on the school to change the curriculum into a more inclusive program where all their children can participate, including their daughters, and their children that are physically challenged. At every public sports event, the parents are invited to come and cheer for their children and to see with their own eyes the empowering impact of sports and play on their children.
