Kicking Bullying Out with Inclusion
Kevin and Dawson are brothers and Special Olympics Youth Leaders from Uganda who will lead a Youth Innovation Project aimed at stopping bullying of people with intellectual disabilities through sports. Through this project, Kevin and Dawson will plan Youth Leadership Conferences and engage with other Youth Leaders to bring sports competitions and trainings to multiple schools. Kevin and Dawson will also organize Unified Fan Clubs for continued engagement after their sporting events.
Kevin and Dawson were inspired after noticing that their friends with intellectual disabilities were being bullied and they wanted to advocate for this to stop. Over the course of six months, Kevin and Dawson hope to engage 50 youth by promoting their events on various social media sites. Kevin and Dawson are inspiring the Unified Generation to end bullying by leading trainings and competitions for athletes to play together.
