Message from The President of CBDS

Welcome to the World Deaf Youth Games in Brazil!

We are very anxious and with affection we will welcome all the young people, you are the future for all of us.

Sport contributes to life, with an emphasis on health, self-esteem and choosing a positive path in life. The event will provide cultural exchanges and knowledge to participants, we are sure it will be a milestone in the history of all young people.

Sport shows the world that youth does not stop and continues togrow as an example for others.

In Brazil we have more than 5,000 deaf athletes who are examples and bring visibility so that all deaf people feel able to compete in high performance and performance.

This is a time when society will be able to see competitions recognize the value of sport for the deaf and consequently invest more resources in equity for other people with disabilities.
