Mr Harpreet Singh emphasised on the issue of intellectual disability in his presentation at Maidan Summit 2011. Highlighting the scale of Special Olympics Bharat, the second largest Special Olympics programme in the world which reaches out to all 600 districts in India, he shared that Special Olympics is perhaps the biggest movement that inclusively engages men and women through sport. He further added that these sport activities do not encourage physical contact and rely on equal opportunities.
He supported the view that sport programmes are a great adhesive, and help connect people. Sharing his experience with sport at the Special Olympics, he detailed out the power of sports as a tool to build up greater respect, acceptance, inclusion and human dignity.
