They really like to play football. Today, children received a lot of emotions, a charge of vivacity and energy. I think our youth should be smart, healthy and without bad habits. Children are our future!” said the teacher of the family-type children’s village Saulenai Kenzhekol.

The event consisted of various exercises, fun relay races and a friendly match against the players of the football center "Aksu".
