The I’mPOSSIBLE programme is the official educational programme of the global Paralympic Movement and was developed by the Agitos Foundation, the International Paralympic Committee’s (IPC) development arm, to spread the Paralympic values and the vision of the Paralympic Movement to young people throughout the world. Through education of inclusion and the Paralympic values, I’mPOSSIBLE aims to challenge and change the perceptions of how young people perceive people with a physical impairment, thus bringing about a more inclusive society. I’mPOSSIBLE aspires to open the eyes of young people that they can achieve seemingly impossible things through the Paralympic values: Courage, Determination, Inspiration and Equality.

The programme combines classroom lessons and practical Para sport activities, with a focus on four Para sports - sitting volleyball, boccia, athletics for visually impaired athletes and goalball. By Learning, Engaging and Including, Maltese students are able to experience Para sport first-hand and step into the shoes of persons with disabilities. The programme also serves as a recruitment and grassroots initiative for MPC and is an ideal opportunity for students with disabilities to get involved in Para sport. The programme is being coordinated by Ms. Rachel Cachia, Ms. Rachel Bonett and Mr. Antonello Calleja on behalf of the MPC, the latter two educators having successfully completed the I’mPOSSIBLE Educator’s Course conducted by the International Paralympic Committee in 2021.

HOW IT WORKS

For the third year running since the programme was first implemented by the Malta Paralympic Committee in the 2020, MPC continues to expand the I’mPOSSIBLE Education Programme, reaching new heights in the 2022/2023 academic year and growing further in the current 2023/2024 year. 

MPC collaborates with participating schools by providing teacher training sessions, adapted sports equipment, toolkits and resources, and organising presentations by local Para athletes, among other initiatives.
