At the end of last year, Hyatt Regency Belgrade traditionally organized a charity competition for the most beautiful Christmas tree, and the total amount of   12,750 Euros of companies-participants’ fees was donated to our Foundation for the adaptation and furnishing of the “Our joy” preschool in Boljevac.

Yesterday, in Boljevac, we celebrated the opening of a study room for 25 children within the “Our joy” preschool. The works included the construction of a partition wall, adaptation of the entire space, furnishing the study room with furniture, mobile beds, toys, didactic material, and a new hallway with a wardrobe. This is also the very first project that the Foundation has implemented on the territory of the municipality of Boljevac.

Just to remind you: Hyatt Regency Belgrade traditionally organizes a charity event called “Choosing the most beautiful Christmas tree” every year, where participating companies and their employees socialize and compete in creativity. Last year, 14 companies took part and thus collected a total of 12,750 euros, which made 25 children in Boljevac happy and provided them with a place in preschool – 25 new places for the 25th anniversary of this beautiful event!

Since last year’s event was held on December 5, on the World Volunteer Day””our volunteers, who have been an important part of our organization for years, helped us decorate our own Christmas tree. Inspired by our mission, last year’s Christmas tree decoration theme was “Let’s Dream Together”.

On behalf of the Novak Djokovic Foundation, the opening was attended by the fundraising manager Emina Potric, who on this occasion wished the children from Boljevac the best possible start to their preschool days.

Expect a domino effect of good news: Emina Potric, fundraising manager at the Novak Djokovic Foundation; and Vesna Bogojevic, director of the Preschool “Our joy” in Boljevac.

We are happy that the works were completed on time and that together with Hyatt Regency hotel and the companies that participated, we enabled another 25 children to go to preschool with their peers. Thank you for believing in our mission and children’s dreams!

We owe a great deal of gratitude to the following companies and wish them to continue their dedicated work and the culture of giving back:
