The goal of this project is to advocate the barrier-free environment in cities. As for now, only several stations of Kyiv metro are equipped with elevators and ramps, available for people with reduced mobility. It makes using this kind of transport almost impossible for them.

The exhibition is a crowdfunded project - each photo has its own sponsor. The idea of such a way to pay tribute to Paralympic winners and at the same time drawing attention to their needs belongs to volunteer organisation People's Project.
