Our Story, Our Mission

Welcome to Special Olympics Kenya

Special Olympics Kenya is a movement of people creating a new world of inclusion and community, where every single person is accepted and welcomed, regardless of ability or disability. We are helping to make the world a better, healthier and more joyful place — one athlete, one volunteer, one family member at a time.

Our Mission is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competitions in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

Our Activities

For a better, healthier and more joyful world

Through our program and activities we cater for the intellectually disabled.



What does every child want? The chance to kick a ball, to throw it well, to share that success with family members. What does every child with intellectual disabilities want? The exact same thing.



The goal is to create communities where Special Olympics athletes and others with intellectual disabilities (ID) have the same access to health and wellness resources – and can attain the same level of good health – as all community members.


Community Building

By creating a network of support, we provide opportunities for families to share their experiences of bringing up children with intellectual disabilites to help them educate each other and enhance their caregiving and parental skills.  


Unified Leadership

As our Athletes train and compete, they also develop their leadership skills as volunteers, coaches, fund-raisers, staffers, Board members and spokespersons.


And much more..

Through Special Olympics, the intellectually disabled are able to contribute in so many ways beyond the playing field as they become valuable, integrated members of the community.
