“Through the Big Heart project, together with our clients and in cooperation with Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation, we have raised RSD 1.5 million to set up new equipment in the largest kindergarten in Mladenovac municipality. We know that time spent outdoors is highly beneficial to the development of children, and we are pleased that 500 kids will able to enjoy playing at the new playground”, said Željka Ćirić Jakovljević, Head of Marketing and Corporate Communication Division at Eurobank.
The children and representatives of the preschool institution “Jelica Obradović” were also greeted by Ana Koeshall, the director of the Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation, a partner of Eurobank in the project.
