The También Foundation is a non-profit-making organization whose end result is the social integration of people with any physical, mental, intellectual and/or sensory disability, by means of tailoring sport to disabled people needs, using it like a social integration tool. A tool that provides a great deal of enjoyment and many important, physical and mental benefits.
