Differently abled persons in Burera district, Southern Province have received a new modern Sitball pitch and expressed readiness to demonstrate good performance during upcoming competitions.

As the persons living with disabilities have explained, they have been making long walks to reach pitch for exercises or would participate in competitions without preparations, thus standing minimal chance to win.

Imanaturikumwe Emmanuel is one of beneficiaries who told IGIHE that received infrastructure will add up to their performance.

“Before, we used to walk long distance for exercises at TTC Kirambo. The pitch was not properly built covered with rough concrete. Due to such difficulties, we would sometimes compete without preparations that we didn’t perform well,” he said.

The coordinator of the National Council of Persons Living with Disabilities in Burera district, Ndayambaje Théoneste has also highlighted that the infrastructure anticipates victories to beneficiaries.

“We used to exhibit poor performance compared to Rubavu and Musanze teams because they were trained on smooth pitches. We shall undoubtedly win when competitions resume because we have received a modern pitch. We promise to induce pride to the district which has provided the facility,” he noted.

The mayor of Burera district, Uwanyirigira Marie Chantal has explained that they will continue supporting people with disabilities.

“Persons living with disabilities have proven that they can achieve great things. We are committed to continue proving support to promote their welfare,” he said.
