Novak Djokovic Foundation has in the past period donated the total of 300 books to primary schools in Ljig, Gruza and Sirca. This donation of another 300 books to be equally distributed to Vladicin Han, Merosina and Baljevac is, in fact, only a continuation of activities marking April 23rd – The World Book Day.

The library of the Primary school“Vuk Karadzic” in Stubal village in the municipality of Vladicin Han, became richer for 100 modern titles. The specificity of this school is reflected in great interests of students in extracurricular activities such as literary and drama groups, where children work hard and participate in poetry and prose competitions. This school is an example of good practice in the field of inclusion as well.

This donation is a real jewel for our pupils, the best way to restore their confidence in the book value and richness of the written word, to let children stimulate the imagination in a different way and to enrich their knowledge – Danijela Mitic the headmaster of “Vuk Karadzic” primary school.

On the same day, the books were eagerly welcomed by the children from the school “Jastrebacki partizani” in Oblacina village, municipality of Merosina. The school is attended by nearly 270 children, and besides good mathematicians, athletes and dancers of traditional dances, this school also mesmerizes with excellent reciters.

New titles support our efforts to remind our children that a book should be a part of their everyday lifes and to guide them to cherish such values – Miljan Djordjevic, headmaster.

Pupils from the primary school “Josif Pancic” from Baljevac will now also have an opportunity to read contemporary literature. This donation is very important because it modernized the quite outdated capacities of the school library, which had over 80% of a passive book fund, as well as books which were not adequate for use.

We are very grateful to Novak Djokovic Foundation, because this donation means a lot to us. Reading the new literature will be a true satisfaction for our students. For now, we only lack books that are on the reading lists for all grades – 1st to 8th. We believe that we will get these books as well and round up our capacities to enable every child to rent a book and read the prescribed reading – said the employees from “Josif Pancic” school.

In one day Novak Djokovic Foundation made children from three municipalities happy. This was just the beginning of one big campaign that we started and we hereby invite all those who have a good will and capability to join us, to jointly point out to the significance of books, to support school libraries and to improve their effective attendance.
