Unified Champion Schools in Tanzania

Amina and Steven are Special Olympics Youth Leaders from Tanzania who participated in the 2019 Global Youth Leadership Summit. Amina and Steven will lead a Youth Innovation Project to increase inclusion and awareness of the Special Olympics movement through the creation of Unified Champion Schools. Amina and Steven saw a need for inclusion  in their community and were inspired to motivate and train new Youth Leaders to spread change.


Over the course of three months, Amina and Steven plan to establish five new Unified Champion Schools and train more than 30 Youth Leaders. From here, Amina and Steven will seek partnerships with both governmental and non-governmental organizations to provide sustainable support for the new Unified Champion Schools. By establishing new Unified Champion Schools and empowering new Youth Leaders, Amina and Steven are growing the Unified Generation in Tanzania.
