Now orphanages and their partners provide physical care and also strive to maximize each person's potential to benefit the individual and the society writ large. The providers have a certain amount of autonomy to carry out this mission. The attendees viewed a brief presentation on the association's purpose and the role of the games.

The Olympiad includes both sporting and non-sporting events. Sports competitions include: Table tennis, swimming, track and football. Non-sport competitions include: Recitation of the Holy Quran, public speaking, cultural competition and theater.
