AS Monaco is continuing to work in partnership with Special Olympics Monaco with the aim of raising awareness about athletes with intellectual disabilities and encouraging their integration into society. There are 10 participants aged between 25 and 40 that are taking part in Monaco's One Team program, which looks to develop essential life skills such as communication, team building, confidence, motivation and respect. Monaco plans to deliver eight two-hour sessions from the end of January 2024 until May 2024. The program is supported by the Monaco government and the restaurant Bella Vita.
For the fourth consecutive season, Yakuba Ouattara embraces the program as One Team Ambassador.
