The children from Svilajnac enter the new school year with two reconstructed schools, within which the rooms have been adapted for the new kindergartens, and there are total of 12 kindergartens opened in the villages in the Svilajnac municipality – 150 children will this autumn get the best facilities for growing up and development. The Novak Djokovic Foundation donated furniture, didactic, sports materials and consumables for the kindergartens in the villages of Crkvenac and Bobovo, worth over EUR 30,000.00.
Twelve new rural kindergartens will be completely free of charge and, this way, we stimulate rural population to stay here in their households, we provide the children with learning and development opportunities equal to those that the children in the city have, and thus moving the living conditions in the countryside to those in the city.

Cooperation with Svilajnac municipality has lasted for several years, and we are proud that it always results in better conditions for growing up and education of the children. With the children, parents and teachers from Svilajnac we went through the support programs and professional development, and we are happy that 35 children from Svilajnac will soon be coming with us to the Friendship Games, one-week long friendship camp on Kopaonik.
