What We Do

The Novak Djokovic Foundation is focused on Early Childhood Education (ECE) and Early Childhood Development (ECD).

Both prepare children as they progress through life and face new challenges. With the right support, any child can become a winner in the field of their choosing.

The Situation

50%

The coverage of children 3-5 years old in Serbia

9%

The coverage of children from poor families who attend preschool

6%

The coverage of children from Roma populations who attend preschool

2.5k

The number of locations without any preschool infrastructure

Each year, there are 90,000 children in Serbia without access to a preschool education. The NDF believes in those children, and in their potential to change our world. By making long-term investments in schools for our youngest citizens, we are investing in our future.

The research is clear: young children who receive a quality preschool education reap the benefits for the rest of their lives. It is time for these children to discover the world around them! Time to learn, to play, to socialize. We know that when given the proper care, love, and support, every child can shine.

How We Work

We only invest in projects that are going to be sustainable

By taking a collaborative approach and working alongside local authorities to train and empower teachers, we create self-sustaining schools and programs that will help children realize their dreams for the rest of their lives.

Our Programs

School Adaptations

We work closely with local authorities to obtain all relevant permits and licenses to either refurbish an existing structure or, where no such structure is available, to build a school completely from scratch.

Teacher Support

Working with local government, we educate, train, and empower teachers to ensure that our children receive the best possible education. We know that well supported and informed teachers are the key to a thriving school.

Development Programs

Children are the most valuable members of society. An educated, hopeful child is a promise to the future that the world will be a better, kinder place.

Working With Others

There is strength in numbers. By partnering with organizations from all over the world, we can make the biggest impact possible.
