In Russia, children with Down syndrome still face many obstacles in integrating into society, but football is a unique therapy for them. In football games, children play as a team and become sociable by communicating with their coach and teammates. Alina Kulikova is a coach of a group of kids with Down syndrome in Moscow. Now there are around 80 children taking part in the project. By playing football, they are no longer afraid and become brave, open and sociable, which Kulikova thinks is "the coolest thing."
