Sharing a vision Special Olympics Haiti

By Georges Bony

Enabling Minds and the leadership at The St. Charles Borromeo School in Croix-des-Bouquets share a similar vision with the Special Olympics: by helping to include people with intellectual disabilities into the community, the entire country and world will benefit. In September 2013 the School in the Santos 19 section of Croix-des-Bouquets will begin a pilot class of 10 children with developmental disabilities, virtually all intellectual disabilities. Enabling Minds, a United States group that strives to assist individuals with intellectual disabilities in underserved regions, is working to assist the St. Charles Borromeo School in serving these children by providing financial and educational support. This project will allow children with disabilities in this community to attend school and be included with children without disabilities. Special Olympics Haiti will open a practice program in order to integrate these children to the world of sport, partnership, friendship, love and socialization.
