También Foundation is a non-profit organization whose aim is the social integration of people with any physical, mental, intellectual or sensory disability, by means of tailoring sport to disabled people's needs, using it as a social integration tool. Implementing a system like this provides enjoyment and many important physical and mental benefits.
This pioneering project for adapting sport to disabled people`s needs was born in 2001, when Teresa Silva (founder and managing director of También Foundation), had a paragliding accident and, as a consequence, has used a wheelchair ever since. It was then when she realised the difficulties faced by disabled people in filling up their spare time with leisure activities.
