Establishing a Unified Generation in Lebanon

Mahdi and Sara are Special Olympics Youth Leaders from Lebanon who will work with Youth from several other schools to achieve inclusion for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Mahdi and Sara will draw on their extensive experience with past Special Olympics forums, summits, and activities to build a Unified Generation in Lebanon. 


Over a period of twelve months, Mahdi and Sara will approach potential new and current Unified Schools to raise awareness about their project, and engage 30 new Youth Leaders and more than 100 youth with and without intellectual disabilities throughout Lebanon. Mahdi and Sara will aim to overcome stereotypes and stigma by highlighting talents of youth with intellectual disabilities through music, a food and craft fair, and a photography competition.
