New Playground for Children of Rakovica
Belgrade, December 23, 2015 – More than 500 children from the kindergarten of the “Rakovica“ Pre-School Institution have a new playground and a Montessori classroom for the development group. The total playground reconstruction and the classroom, worth more than 1.5 million dinars, are part of the “Big Heart” project of Eurobank in cooperation with the “Ana and Vlade Divac“ Foundation. The playground is fully adjusted to children between 2 and 7 years old and to children with disabilities that are attending this kindergarten.
This is the 32nd reconstructed playground in five years of the project, owing to more than 22.000 users of the unique “Big Heart” MasterCard card.
“The humanitarian and traditional Big Heart campaign has brought happiness to nearly 10.000 children across Serbia, as well as to us, adults, since it has provided us with an opportunity to step away from numbers and everyday tasks and take a peek into the children’s world. This year we have made happy children in six kindergartens and schools across Serbia. Let me use the language of the institution I represent and say that children are our major pledge for the future, a value that grows exponentially over time,” said Magdalena Tatić, Head of Consumer Lending in Eurobank.
“Duško Radović” Kindergarten has for decades been upbringing, educating and preparing children, including those with disabilities, for a big step towards the world of adults.
“I would like to thank Eurobank and the Foundation for helping us educate and motivate more than 500 children to advance in a better environment. The new playground, and particularly the Montessori classroom, is important for children with disabilities, who manage to keep pace with their peers in this manner via inclusive activities,” said Radmila Aranđelović, Director of the “Rakovica” Pre-School Institution.
“We are glad that we have made happy the children in this kindergarten as well, together with our partners and friends from Eurobank. There is no greater joy than watching happy children playing, as only happy children become happy and satisfied adults. Therefore, we will always help wherever is necessary to improve conditions for high-quality growing up and education of our youngest,” said Ana Divac, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors of the “Ana and Vlade Divac” Foundation.
