Joint donation of the Novak Djokovic Foundation and the Municipality of Pozega for the preschool reconstruction

Representatives of the Novak Djokovic Foundation and the local self-government today officially opened newly refurbished kindergarten “Bambi” within the preschool institution “Olga Jovicic Rita” in Pozega.

The Novak Djokovic Foundation donated EUR 94,000 for the reconstruction of this full-day preschool, currently attended by over 300 boys and girls aged 3 to 5. During the renovation process old external doors and windows have been replaced, and existing sanitary blocks and water supply and sewage installations have been repaired. In addition, newly plastered walls and ceilings have been painted in bright and lovely colors and new floors have been installed in the kindergarten due to the funds provided by the Municipality of Pozega, in the amount of EUR 15,000.

Gorana Dzudza Jakovljevic, Head of the Project and Program Implementation Department at the Novak Djokovic Foundation, explained that the facility was in a bad share and needed urgent reconstruction.

Over the last few months, a lot of work has been done in order to increase the facility energy efficiency and improve sanitary conditions in the kindergarten “Bambi”. The Municipality of Pozega joined us in the implementation of this project and contributed towards creating best possible conditions for growing up and education of these children. Therefore, we can’t imagine a better way of ending 2017 than with one more successfully implemented project, which adds to festive atmosphere at this time of year.

Milan Bozic, Mayor of the Municipality of Pozega, expressed his gratitude to the Novak Djokovic Foundation for making the implementation of this project possible.

We are glad that our friends from the Novak Djokovic Foundation recognized and supported our efforts to make a positive impact on the lives of our children and provide them with the very best during their early years. We also hope that this project will inspire others to start investing in a better future of young generations.

Snezana Sljivic, director of the PI „Olga Jovicic Rita”, highlighted the importance of this project both for the preschool institution and the entire community.

It’s great to be supported by the Novak Djokovic Foundation, the organisation that shares with us the same committment and passion to help children through early childhood education. Working together we have created a stimulating environment and opportunities for their optimal development and learning. What’s more, our kids will spend enjoyable time and play with their friends in a refreshed, cosy and comfortable classroom space that looks like home.

The project in Pozega has been selected under the 2015/2016 NFD Call for New Projects. The Call offers project funding donations to be invested in the reconstruction and equipping of preschool and school facilities with furniture, play sets, books, toys, teaching and learning materials. The aim is to provide best possible conditions for children in 20 towns throughout Serbia to grow up, play, progress academically, reach their full potential and have a good start in life.
