Bulgan and Zaya
Special Olympics Mongolia
Bulgan and Zaya worked together to lead their Youth Innovation Project with the goal of expanding the Unified movement and creating the first Unified Champion School in Mongolia. The pair started a program called “Life Hackers” to increase connections between students with and without disabilities at the university. They brought university students from the National University of Mongolia and special school graduates together for an after-school type program in order to let university students teach special school graduates daily life skills.
