Project Description:

TOPA Project aims to foster friendship, the spirit of encouragement, and unity in diversity through learning about the Olympic & Paralympic Games, especially their values. Following the 2020 Tokyo Summer Games and 2022 Beijing Winter Games, join this project for the 2024 Paris Summer Games. The Olympics: July 26 – Aug 11, 2024. The Paralympics: Aug 28 – Sept 8, 2024.

TOPA will potentially continue for the upcoming Games.
