Inspirational Egyptian: Ibrahim Hamadtou
Following the motto “Nothing is impossible for those who believe”, Mr. Ibrahim Hamadtou, the famous Egyptian Paralympic champion, who plays without hands is the role model for this year’s main event in Uganda and will definitely encourage kids and youth to believe in their dreams!
Building up to a big day in Uganda!
This year’s main event will be hosted by Slum Ping Pong in Kampala, using the sport to break barriers and develop positive messages on children’s, girls’ and women’s rights. It will also include celebrations with Hoima Network of Child Rights Clubs (HONECRIC) in Hoima (Bunyoro).
Site visits to both the HONECRIC and Slum Ping Pong’s projects will provide an opportunity to showcase ITTF Foundation’s commitment to TT4ALL’s vision and to changing lives through table tennis.
