Laureus 'Sport For Good' Foundation
In October 2004, IMAGE - Indian Mixed Ability Group Events program was launched by the Laureus Sports Academy at Sahara Lake City in Amby Valley.
IMAGE stands for Indian Mixed Ability Group Events. The main aim of IMAGE is to break down barriers that exclude disabled people from mainstream society and bridge the communication gaps, between the able-bodied and disabled communities, through sport. IMAGE proposes to create a new world where able-bodied and disabled children are taking part in an everyday activity side by side on an equal footing, creating a model for other areas of life. This is passive social education with the aim of integrating communities.
