The Paralympic Committee supports the athletes in all countries

Four National Paralympic Committees will receive seed funding from the development arm of the International Paralympic Committee, the Agitos Foundation, for media and public awareness campaigns ahead of Rio 2016. Ghana, Cameroon, Haiti and Argentina will benefit from EUR 1,000, EUR 800, EUR 600 and EUR 400 respectively to promote their athletes and Para sport in the final two months ahead of, during and after the Paralympics.

The countries are all part of the first round of the Agitos Foundation’s Organisational Capacity Programme (OCP), which aims to give NPCs the skills they need to grow and develop. At the same time as publishing the list of successful applicants, the Agitos Foundation also called on other countries to think about how they can create similar campaigns.
