The Special Olympics is a global organization which serves athletes with intellectual disabilities.
In Haiti, the Special Olympics’ mission is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with an intellectual disability. This program provides them with opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in the sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with other Special Olympians and their families.
The Haitian Special Olympics is a small non-profit organization which is struggling to stay a float due to lack of funding. We have helped elevate the organization’s presence in Haiti and beyond through awareness-building.
Our team donated its time to support the Haiti Special Olympics team in 2018 as they prepared for the Global World Games in Dubai.
We donated hundreds of pounds of sporting goods and equipment to various Haitian Special Olympic programs. We also provided athletes with t-shirts and uniforms.
