CPSFI & Sports

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is the leading cause of chronic disability in children, making them physically and mentally handicapped and socially aloof.  In India, it is estimated there are around 3 cases per 1000 live births; however, being a developing country the actual figure may be much higher than probable figures. There are about 25 lakh CP children in India as per the last statistical information.

Cerebral Palsy Sports Federation of India, CPSFI, is  hoping to reach out to a sizeable number of CP children for Cerebral Palsy sports through NGOs who have been working with children with disabilities especially with CP and related neurological conditions.
