Targeting Bullying with Inclusion in Egypt

Hana and Laila are Special Olympics Youth Leaders from Egypt who participated in the 2019 Global Youth Leadership Summit. Together, Hannah and Laila are working to bring awareness about the Special Olympics movement to schools and universities in their Region with the goal of spreading a culture of inclusion, non-bullying, and acceptance for all. Hana and Laila are spreading their message of inclusion by collaborating with schools to create Unified Sports days and mount anti-bullying awareness campaigns.


Over the course of six months, Hana and Laila will advocate for the creation and implementation of Unified Clubs, Unified Schools, and Unified Championship School programs in their local schools and universities. By hosting Unified Sports events at schools throughout Egypt, Hana and Laila will bring attention to their anti-bulling campaign and increase understanding and inclusion for youth with intellectual disabilities. Hana and Laila will work to train teachers and administrators in the schools they are working with to equip them with the tools, strategies, and resources necessary to carry out Special Olympics programs and guide the new Unified Generation.
