SPORTS AND RECREATION

Our level of activity contributes much to our health and well being. Physical activities are lifestyle and cure for all. A regular physical activity keeps the heart muscle in shape and makes the heart a more efficient pump. Through different nodes of action, physical action reduces blood pressure, stress, diabetes risk, increase good cholesterol and blood flow. 

The able and disabled of this community group are lacking the importance of sport, facing life-time constraints in getting access to sports due to certain barriers. NEDA’s sport and recreation is here to bridge and develop ways to in carriage these community  to take active roles in sports by setting up a centre that caters for their sporting needs.

Cultural tradition and religion beliefs are the back bone of all barriers causing low participation in sporting of this society. This community, like fellow Muslims, modesty is one of the main concerns especially for girls and women. Individuals will not consider sports unless they are aware the benefit.

Gender mixing is a sensitive issue with this ethic community. Women in this community will not take part in sports with their male counter-part. This can be a factor that can stop an individual from taking part in sports. We are all aware that NEP community need leisure centres.

NEDA will provide a structured sports program for children to encourage their healthy levels of activity and emphasizes inclusion, skill development, adult role models, and football team building.
