After being selected from more than 650 companies, Handiamo! participated, on december the 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th, to the exhibition « Osons la France » at the Grand Palais, gathering 200 innovative french companies, the « builders of tomorrow ».
Handiamo! took advantage of this wonderful opportunity to present its activities and ambitions to a large audience. Manuel de Los Santos, world number 1 in handigolf in its class, animated during the 4 days an introduction to putting with his disability. Many people tried, including Mrs Aude de Thuin, organizer of « Osons la France », during an exhibition on Adecco’s stand.
The exchanges, with companies present and the public, were of great wealth. A big thank to the jury of « Osons la France », which allowed Handiamo! to save valuable time in our struggle to help changing the way people see disability as well as the relationships and practices between « valid » and « invalid » people.
We also would like to thank Cyril Moré (handiski), Jean-Baptiste Alaize (athletics), Clavel Kayitare (athletics), Timothée Adolphe (athletics), Vladimir Vinchon (horse ridding), Maxime Thomas (table tennis et Michaël Jérémiasz (tennis) for their commitment.
