Malachie was found in a dark room, chained to a pole in a Tanzanian refugee camp. There were limited support systems available for people with intellectual disabilities, so his mother made a desperate attempt to keep her son safe from a world that did not understand his differences. All of that changed when Malachie was brought out of isolation and introduced to Unified Sports. This March, he will compete on the global stage at Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi, where he will demonstrate to millions of people around the world that our athletes remain the greatest teachers of inclusion.
