The seminar was funded by Nippon Sport Science University in Japan, under the Japanese government project called NEPP (NSSU Expansion of Paralympic Participants) with the aim of maximizing NPCs participation in Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games and to build an inclusive society.

Part of the topics covered were on how athletes should work on their diets, identifying nutritious foods, killing calories from their bodies, keeping hydrated and how to plan for meal during and after competitions.

Members of the Gambia National Paralympic Committee expressed appreciation for the timely support, saying they are interested and ready to receive more trainings and seminars to enhance the capacities of their athletes before the rescheduled Paralympic Games in Japan 2021.
