Project description


The school will become a quality institution for education and teaching purposes, where motivated teachers use modern methods and tools using which children will learn, and take part as well in the planning and accomplishment of sports activities


Unluckily many parents are focused only on the mental development of their children.

Doctors always advise to keep equilibrium between mental and physical activities, because the human body cannot work normally without physical activities.



It becomes imperative to teach children gymnastics and sport from early childhood.

This should be taught as a habit which afterwards becomes a healthy hobby.


Like parents, teachers too should help children to choose the best type of sport for them based on their physical capabilities.

We can’t pretend that every child will become a professional, but we must stress out that even sport at an amateur level can do a lot of good against multiple health problems


Sports fields in schools should be equipped with the necessary means for sports like football, basketball, volleyball and more.


We want to improve the entertainment time of children in a way that they spend their leisure time with sports activities during school hours, cultivating psycho-physical skills, better team building capabilities in a way that they realize on their own the good of team work.


We want to raise the awareness level of children and all stakeholders in order to have their collaboration for the improvement of today’s and future generations, towards additional physical activities although such facilities might be missing. The development of technology has left us all living a sedentary life while spending more and more time with internet and “social” media.



Project Goals


  1. Improvement of the schoolyard. This is a very important area for both children and teachers as a lot of activities during the schooling phase and additional ones are held there. It is needed an improvement in the quality of the schoolyard and the areas it contains.
  2. Creation of sports fields for football, basketball and volleyball. Trying to create equilibrium between the mental and physical development, as a base for having a healthy and successful future generation. We think that the creation of such sports fields becomes a top priority.
  3. The newly created sports fields of this school become a reference point for other schools in the nearby communities. The sports fields will as well serve the community into organizing gatherings with nearby villages for a more colorful rural social life. Such collaborative sport activities and gatherings will enable this rural area school to attract children and parents towards a healthy and social life.

Project Mission

  1. Healthier lives for children.
  2. Development of psycho-social and psycho-physical skills.
  3. Ability to work united as a group.
  4. Offer a reference area for gatherings and sport activities for the community and beyond.
