Minister for Youth and Sports Parveen Bala has opened up on discussions of hosting a Pacific tournament for Special students.
This follows the successful outing of the Fiji Special Olympic team in the Abu Dhabi Summer Olympic last month.
Bala says having a Pacific tournament for Special students will mould them into Special Olympians.
“We are thinking of now of hosting a Pacific Special Olympic Games. That’s on the table now and it’s up for discussion.“
Bala says this is to ensure that equality is recognized in sports participation.
