“Despite not having any ground practice sessions due to lack of facilities Guyana’s Blind and Visually Impaired cricketers have been going through physical training sessions in the National Park on Sunday mornings.
When it rains the players have been using the Guyana Society for the Blind Building indoor facilities, while members of the Guyana Blind Cricket Association (GUYBCA) continue to be involved in workshops for capacity building and outreach visits to raise Blindness awareness,” Pemberton informed.
Pemberton said that through the Guyana Council of Organizations for Persons with Disabilities GUYBCA members have been sensitizing persons in Regions 2, 5 & 6 on the Persons with Disability Act 2010. This project is funded by the Government of Guyana.
“Some of our members are also involved in Project “Voting Rights”: Ensuring Access for Persons with Disabilities; this is being funded by USAID,” Pemberton added.
