Project-related activities begin on February 15th, 2021 and will run for 12 months. We are happy that two volunteers are joining our project this year as well, one from Slovenia and one from Slovakia. The aim of the project is to promote solidarity through sports and the activities of volunteers involved in the project. Through the project itself, we will also develop awareness of the topic of health through physical activities in young people and adolescents and the benefits of sports for general health. Volunteers will influence our athletes and the entire local community through various activities such as involving young people with fewer opportunities, activating children in and out of school for better physical activity, and various workshops, camps, practices. You will be able to follow the journey and the realization of the project through our social networks, where we will try to show all the work of volunteers and the club through the project and point out all the benefits that arise from it.
