Thanks to the Let’s Play for Change campaign the IKEA Foundation
is supporting Special Olympics to directly support the growth of Young Athletes programs in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Thailand.
Between 2016 and 2019, we aim to welcome 350,000 children with and without intellectual disabilities into Young Athletes, thereby creating a minimum of 5,000 socially inclusive communities that foster the development and growth of children with intellectual disabilities. By the end of the campaign we hope to impact over 875,000 people, including caregivers, parents and teachers.
With the support of IKEA Foundation, we are working together to share the joy of sports and play with children and families who need it most.
