New manga book series: Athletes living with disabilities
In collaboration with the French Paralympic Comittee
Manga books are very common in France and around the world. This year, with the publication of 3 original manga books, Fondation Ipsen aims to raise awareness on people living with disabilities.
The Paralympic Games are a major international event for disabled athletes. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the Paralympic and Olympic games have been postponed and Fondation Ipsen is convinced it is the perfect occasion to raise the interest of the young public to Paralympic games and to disseminate a message of tolerance and braveness vehiculated by these athletes.
In collaboration with the French Paralympic Committee, Fondation Ipsen will focus the new collection of manga books on 3 sports practiced by disabled athletes. As usual, these manga books will be available for free in English and in French and will be distributed free of charge to schools and public libraries.
