Sport brings disabled and able-bodied kids together in Brazil

The Paralympic Games are currently taking place in Brazil but many disabled children who live there still face huge challenges in their everyday lives.

Having a disability makes it much harder to attend school in Brazil, in fact four in 10 disabled children don't go to school.

That means many children don't get the chance to learn to read and write.

But a sports project being run in hundreds of schools around the country hopes to make all students feel included.

They are bringing disabled and able-bodied children together to play games.

Martin has been to one school in Rio to find out what the children think of the project and the Paralympic Games being held in their home country.
