“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”
– Nelson Mandela
At Adventures Beyond Barriers, we promote inclusion by enabling Persons with Disability and able bodied people to participate in Adventure Sports together.
In the one and a half years since its establishment, ABBF has doggedly committed to the project of inclusivity, using accessible adventure sports as a platform to break through the misconceptions associated with disability.
Believing in sport as a universal leveller, ABBF focuses on building relationships and facilitates experiences independent of (dis)ability, all the way challenging assumptions surrounding questions of disability. The team’s bottom line is simple – the core of adventure lies in personal growth, challenging our own beliefs and pushing our boundaries!
Paragliding, marathons, trekking, scuba diving and mountaineering – ABBF has done it all! ABBF sportspeople have, amongst other things, collected an impressive string of numbers in their wake – participated in dozens of marathons across the country, gone on several inclusive treks as well as reached out to over 3500 people with disabilities and 1.5 lakh people from the mainstream community.
Close on the heels of all the running and climbing, our story has been all over a host of media platforms, from The Indian Express to Outlook. We’ve literally scaled mountains, trekking up to the base camp of Mt. Everest and helping an amputee with his summit expedition.
We would love for you to join us on our adventures!
