    I’mPOSSIBLE is an education programme to spread the Paralympic values and the vision of the Paralympic Movement to young people throughout the world. Through education of inclusion and the Paralympic values, I’mPOSSIBLE aims to challenge and change the perceptions of how young people perceive people with an impairment. This toolkit has been adapted to fit the local context of Ghana as part of AT2030's Para Sport Against Stigma project.
