International Day of Sports for Development and Peace
Novak Djokovic, on behalf of all athletes, has consistently voiced the belief that sport should be recognized as a crucial activity that contributes to education, human development, healthy lifestyles and a peaceful world.
It is appropriate, therefore, for the NDF to recognize the International Day of Sports for Development and Peace, a day ratified by the UN in 2013, with the establishment of an annual sporting event for children
Our first Day of Sport was held in Belgrade at the recreation center on 11th April.
300 schoolchildren from Novi Beograd demonstrated the true spirit of sportsmanship and teamwork while competing in football, handball, and volleyball. The headline for our event was Fill Your Time with the Right Things: Choose Sport! This sentiment perfectly embodies our belief at the NDF that staying active is an essential part of childhood and healthy development.
We were honoured to partner with Samsung to give these
kids a day they are sure to remember for the rest of their lives.
