Players, coaches, and classifiers drawn from six regions of Ethiopia participated in a 10-day wheelchair basketball training.

The training was organized by the ICRC in partnership with the Ethiopian Basketball Federation, and was aimed at strengthening the sport in the country. Wheelchair basketball plays a particularly important role for people living with disabilities because it promotes social inclusion.
