ABOUT THE COMPANY
The Special Olympics and the United Arab Emirates - established within three years of each other - were both founded on the premise that inclusive qualities such as tolerance, unity, and goodwill not only empower individuals to succeed, but yield productive communities that improve society as a whole.
In keeping with these national values, the UAE’s capital – Abu Dhabi – intends to stage the most unified World Games in the history of the Special Olympics.
With its diverse population and a tradition of warm hospitality, the people of Abu Dhabi demonstrate, every day, the spirit at the heart of the Special Olympics: We respect people from all walks of life and abilities, and our citizens and residents are generous with both their time and resources. We also have the ideal setting for the Special Olympics, a globally-central location, with modern facilities and infrastructure that will ensure the success of the games.
