“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.” - Nelson Mandela
Adventures Beyond Barriers Foundation (ABBF) is a not-for-profit, based out of Pune, that promotes inclusivity.
Through adventure and outdoor sport initiatives, ABBF provides visibility for Persons with Disability (PwD) and strives to shatter social stereotypes. The organization believes that as a society we need to promote an environment of openness, sensitivity, and empathy towards PwDs. Currently ABBF’s initiatives include marathons, tandem cycling, scuba diving, paragliding, and mountaineering. M2K, as the yearly expedition is known in short, is ABBF’s flagship fund raising event. There are more such marquee events on the cards. Adventure encourages a better sense of understanding among able-bodied individuals and PwDs, as well as society at large. The events are a witness to the camaraderie of sport first hand.
