Novak Djokovic Foundation Donates to Kindergarten in Aleksandrovac

by , Posted on 26th Apr 2017

Representatives of the Novak Djokovic Foundation and the preschool institution “Nasa radost” in Aleksandrovac signed the agreement regarding the reconstruction and equipping of the main facility within this preschool.

The Foundation is providing funds in the amount of EUR 53,867 for the implementation of the project that includes replacement of old doors and windows, as well as adaptation of the classrooms, currently accommodating 378 children.

Gorana Dzudza Jakovljevic, NDF project manager, said on this occasion that the project activities will also cover wall plastering and painting as well as equipping of the kindergarten with new carpets and toys.

PI “Nasa radost” has a long tradition of making a positive, tangible and lasting difference to the lives of children in this community. Many generations learned their first letters and numbers, and forged their first friendships in life in these classrooms. Unfortunately, the preschool in Aleksandrovac hasn’t been reconstructed since it was open more than 40 years ago. However,  the facility has the potential for improvement. Therefore we’ve decided to implement this significant project here and transform the old kindergarten into children’s dream place. We also provided funds for additional works to ensure the building meets energy efficiency requirements. Our goal is to refurbish the existing premises, fill them with new colourful toys, learning materials and other necessary stuff and thus reach better prospects for education and development of these wonderful boys and girls during their early years, explained Dzudza Jakovljevic.

We would like to express our gratitude to the Novak Djokovic Foundation for recognizing the needs of our preschool institution and for helping us change the present conditions in this facility for the better. Due to their generous donation, earmarked for replacement of exterior joinery, carrying out interior reconstruction works and kindergarten equipping, we will be able to create a warm, safe and caring environment for our children to learn, enjoy and play with their friends as well as support all aspects of their development, said Daliborka Simic, director of PI “Nasa radost”.

The project in Aleksandrovac has been selected under the 2015/2016 NFD Call for New Projects, held last year. The aim of this Call is investing in the reconstruction and equipping of preschool and school facilities with furniture and other equipment in order to provide best possible conditions for children in 20 towns throughout Serbia to grow up, play, explore, reach their full potential and have a good start in life.
