From Unified to Unified Champions in Madagascar
Edouard and Hoby Nirina Fandresena are Youth Leaders from Madagascar who will lead a Youth Innovation Project aiming to increase inclusion on and off the sports field. Together, Edouard and Hoby Nirina Fandresena will organize various sporting games and competitions for youth with and without intellectual disabilities to play together. In addition to these competitions, they also hope to inspire players to use their skills off the sports field in other extracurricular activities. Edouard and Hoby Nirina Fandresena believe that inclusion is not something that simply happens at an event but is instead a lifestyle that everyone should embrace, and they hope to showcase this through their project.
Over the course of nine months, Edouard and Hoby Nirina Fandresena hope to engage 150 Youth Leaders to educate their community on what inclusion can look like and empower students with and without intellectual disabilities to follow their passions. Through this project, Edouard and Hoby Nirina Fandresena will inspire others around them to join the Unified Generation.
