Iran’s capital opens the first café run only by people with Down syndrome and autism. The “Downtism Café” opened in Tehran’s Vanak Street, Ayneh Passaj  on Tuesday. The staff comprises 10 people with the genetic features. "Simply go to this café and order a cup of coffee to believe that these individuals, too, can be socially active,” said one visitor about the place.
