Inclusive youth pair hit right between the eyes at Special Olympics Social Impact Summit - Essilor See Change

In terms of vision need, there are few populations more marginalized and discriminated against than people with intellectual disabilities. Meet Brina and Sashi, two courageous Special Olympics youth leaders who aim to raise the flag for inclusive vision care with their “Eye Can Play” project.

The Generation Unified (GenUin) Special Olympics Social Impact Summit gathered 120 youth leaders from 30 countries to develop Impact projects focusing on ideas that will make their communities more inclusive for people with intellectual disabilities.

Watch this video to see how the importance of healthy vision was singled out as one of the key issues at the Summit when Filipina participants Brina Maxino and Sashi Montana courageously pitched their idea “Eye Can Play: A Fun Eyeffair” and were shortlisted as one of the top 5 projects to present to a panel of VIP judges.
