Mentally Enabled, Not Disabled.

This photo was taken by Vadim Ghirda on December 3, 2010.  Romanian children with mental disabilities are shown participating in a basketball lesson to recognize International Day of Disabled Persons in Bucharest, Romania.  Similarly to how NYSARC Fitness strides to include all people of different disabilities and backgrounds, Romania and other European Union states are trying to integrate people with disabilities into society.
