“Decided To Double Every Donation You Make This Year Again”: Novak and Jelena Djokovic
Novak and Jelena Djokovic have invested € 13millon over 14 years in child education programs and projects. Mostly, construction and adaptation of preschools to create a safe environment for the next generation.
The Coronavirus pandemic has affected educational systems worldwide. Schools and colleges remain closed to further notice.
On the other hand, several parents are now working from home, and it is challenging to educate their children during this unprecedented time.
Djokovic and Jelena explained, “This year has further demonstrated how important it is for children to attend preschool, particularly in a situation when parents are forced to work from home and are not able to dedicate their time to children adequately. However, it should not be forgotten that there are still those who are not able to go to preschool even in normal circumstances.”
“So this year, the goal is to open new preschools in Vajska and Ljubis villages, which will accommodate a total of 105 children. Each of these places has its own story, and we want to tell it to the whole world, with the help of those who believe in our mission. That is why we have decided to double every donation you make this year again.”, Founders concluded.
