NEXT year's Fiji Paralympic Games will be taken to the disabled people instead of them coming to the games.
This comes after the successful completion of the Digicel-sponsored event on Monday.
Fiji Paralympic Committee senior sports development officer Saimoni Nainoca said this year's event saw over 300 people from 14 provinces and 22 districts come together at one venue to participate in the annual games and also to celebrate International Day of People with Disability.
He said next year the games would be taken to them so they don't have to come all the way to the games venue.
"In the past, they had to come to wherever the games were hosted but next year that won't be the case," Nainoca said.
"Next year, we will take it to their doorstep," he said. He said people with disabilities were usually spectators during events and sports functions.
"In the past, these people when most of them were young, they were deprived of this opportunity to come and participate in such an event.
"They were being segregated and no one bothered about them."
