The “Football Spirit in the Jungle” Project brings together indigenous villagers--including villagers with disabilities--from the Tikar and Bedzan Pygmy tribes through local football tournaments, which promote disability rights, disability awareness, conflict resolution, community organizing, health promotion, and leadership development.

This project is unique because it relies on the vision, leadership, and participation of people with disabilities and women in organizing community-wide football tournaments in the middle of the equatorial rainforest of Cameroon.
