I congratulate Special Olympics Movement for having agreed to work with coaches, volunteers in different domains of sports. I am a trainer of a group of rural youth where sports is rarely practiced and we are beginning to initiate training in athletics, volleyball, cycling and soccer for young children below 16 years. My country is Burundi, my town is Cankuzo. We would like to have Special Olympics in our town.
