In order to create better conditions for athletes with disabilities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Paralympic Committee of BiH, on the initiative of Azra Atagić-Ćatović, recently launched a project and campaign “No one told me”.
The aim of the campaign is to promote sports for people with disabilities, so that more children and young people with disabilities would get involved in sports, and to enable the best athletes to represent Bosnia and Herzegovina at major international competitions. Among the sports for persons with disabilities, volleyball has so far been most represented in Bosnia and Herzegovina, however, it is important that other sports for athletes with disabilities also gain some ground.
“Slovenia and Croatia have launched similar projects seven or eight years ago, and the conditions for doing sports have been visibly improved in these countries. I came up with the idea of launching a campaign together with the Paralympic Committee of Bosnia and Herzegovina in order to promote the Paralympic Games in order to provide better conditions for working and dealing with sports for people with disabilities in Bosnia and Herzegovina. I want to emphasize that the campaign was realized only thanks to the help of our sponsors who provided their knowledge, time and resources so that the campaign could see the light of day,” said Atagić-Ćatović.
According to her, one of the goals of the campaign is the establishment of sports clubs for people with disabilities which would enable them training and active engagement in sports, which will lead to the establishment of state-level sports federations. The goal is also to train coaches and sports workers and provide adequate equipment.
Within the campaign, seven athletes were presented: two swimmers, two skiers, one volleyball player, one basketball player and one ball thrower.
One of the sponsors was the agency Communis Sarajevo, which created and designed the campaign. Zvezdana Žujo, director of the agency Communis, said on this occasion: “We are very glad to have the opportunity to participate in such a noble project. We sincerely hope that our Paralympic athletes will acquire all the necessary conditions and be equal with other competitors at international events. That would really be a delight to us.”
The TV ads were filmed by the crew from state public broadcaster BHRT.
Margo printing house also placed their resources at the disposal of the campaign, and had printed the campaign posters free of charge.
