The National Geographic's Adventurer of the year is Mira Rai! "I have been able to do the things I did because so many people believed in me and took chances, and I want to give back so others can have a chance just the way I did...We have a saying in Nepal, ‘Khana pugyos, dina pugos,’ which means, ‘Let there be enough to eat, let there be enough to give.’ ”
A week ago today the #Rio #Olympics came to an end! While it was hard to say goodbye, we are looking forward to the Paralympic Games in September! Make sure you share your sports triumphs with Action Connected all year round in our "Recreation & Sports" group! We look forward to hearing how sports are bettering your community!
As we look ahead to the Paralympic Games in September, we want to bring you coverage you can use! During the Olympics, we shared #Brazilian groups changing their corner of the world. For the #Paralympic Games, we will bring you information about Disability Activist groups bringing down barriers. We are conducting a short survey - 1 question, three options - on Twitter.

Action Connected has greatly enjoyed sharing the first refugee team with our followers! Before we say a final goodbye from these games, check out the videos of each team member!
As we move forward from Rio 2016, let's remember the impact and importance of Team Refugees. They were not just displaced people that competed to make us feel good during a traumatic time; they represented millions of people doing their best to escape violence. When the games are done, let's do our part to help refugees and end the violent clashes that create refugees in the first place.
