EVS project in Funkibator


About Funkibator association

Funkibator Ideell Förening is a local association started in 2011 and is the result of a development center project called Funkibator. In the county of Kronoberg there are a few youth organizations within the field of disability so we decided to start one ourselves. It is a regional organization and our main target group is children, youth and young adults and people up to the age of 40. Funkibator Ideell Förening is for people regardless of diagnosis as we want to focus on the activities and not the diagnosis. Our goal is to become a national organization and establish the organization all over Sweden.
We offer different activities in the organization and our motto is that it should be concrete, fun and social. Some of our activities include leisure activities for young people with disabilities; monthly activities such as mini educations, inspirational meetings. Other activities have included bowling, wheelchair handball, movie night, winter holiday sports camp, summer camp, badminton, study visits etc. We feel it is important that our target group meet new people and gain a bigger network, both digitally and in real life.
We also cooperate with Växjö municipality and offer summer jobs for disabled youth. Växjö is a small city in the south of Sweden with a municipality of 80.000 inhabitants. The office of Funkibator association is in the city center of Växjö and is very close to the bus and train station. The offices are wheel chair accessible.
