Etgarim (Challenge) was founded in 1995 by a group of disabled IDF (Israel Defense Forces) veterans, disabled civilians and senior rehabilitation professionals. It was founded in order to help children, adolescents and adults with physical and mental disabilities or special needs to rehabilitate themselves physically, mentally and socially through challenging sports and outdoor activities. Etgarim gives them hope and help them to integrate into society. They train instructors and coaches for working with the disabled who then provide educational, rehabilitative and therapeutic programs. Equipment and facilities are acquired and developed to be more accessible. In addition, Etgarim joins sports and adventure therapy clubs for people who aren’t disabled, in order to incorporate the disabled in the activities, and public awareness is raised.
