In tune with the international Special Olympics agenda, Special Olympics Namibia aims to bring public attention to the talents and capabilities of people with intellectual disabilities, helping to change attitudes and break down barriers that exclude them from the mainstream of the community.

Special Olympics has also finalized the selection of a national team for the Special Olympics World Summer Games slated for Los Angeles, California (USA) from July 25 – August 2 this year.
