The Korea International Cooperation Agency Signs Cooperation Agreement with Special Olympics
Mar 11 15
The Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) has signed a Cooperation Agreement with Special Olympics on March 10, 2015. The Agreement establishes an initial framework for cooperation between the two parties, providing a basis for joint programs designed to find innovative solutions for reducing poverty, discrimination, health disparities, and support improved health status and standard of living for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. KOICA will, using its own resources, assist those people with intellectual disability by sending experts and volunteers on the ground and introducing other capacity building programs in collaboration with Special Olympics. For this purpose, KOICA and Special Olympics will also conduct other joint activities based on the Agreement, in the critical development areas of health, education, social inclusion, and more. Special Olympics expressed the hope that the newly established relationship with KOICA will not only strengthen capabilities of Special Olympics for executing more meaningful programs but also contribute to the efforts of the United Nations to reduce all forms of inequality and disparities throughout the world, particularly in terms of assisting individuals with intellectual disabilities.
