13 million people in China have an intellectual disability and integrating into mainstream society can sometimes be an uphill struggle.
Peng and other Young Leaders in Guangzhou will deliver the Unified Schools programs for children with and without intellectual disabilities.
This will use football to create a safe and inclusive environment for over 200 children of all abilities, helping break down barriers, challenge stereotypes and build friendships.
“Through this project we can come together to enjoy football and build a community of acceptance and inclusion.” Peng, 20
This project is delivered in partnership with Special Olympics East Asia.
