For 14-year-old Thamanoon from Thailand, football is much more than just a game. It’s a way to develop self-confidence and stand up to bullies. Having recently lost his father and now helping his mother support the family, Thamanoon is attending a new school where he has earned a place on the football team – and a fresh start.

UNICEF and FIFA, the international football federation, have teamed up for the 2006 FIFA World Cup to ensure every child's right to a peaceful world.
