Creating an environment conducive to comprehensive physical, creative and sporting development of the children and their caregivers living at the Centre for Children in need "Our Kids". The main idea is to encourage and motivate children to take up sport, look after their own health, and engage in physical activities over bad habits.
To promote children’s sport, the Centre intends to invite professional coaches, sports advisors, and nutritionists who will provide guidance to the children during organised exercises and training activities. Every coach and advisor will work with children in groups of three to ten according to age as well as individually depending on the children’s needs.
Professional coaches, like no other, can motivate the children to take up sports and exercise and explain the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and maintaining their own physical and mental health.
Nutritionist will provide the caregivers with advice on a healthy diet, prescribe a diet for the entire family, and motivate the children to choose only healthy and quality foods.
Rehabilitation coaches will provide a professional health assessment of the children and then individually address their physical health problems. Individual rehabilitation programmes will be developed for the children who need them. Such programmes may involve taking up a particular sport or specific exercise routine.
The Our Kids Centre has its own outdoor sports ground suitable for football, basketball, roller hockey, volleyball, roller skating, and badminton, two gyms equipped with gymnastics bars, a ping pong table, weights, balls, etc., and a small football pitch.
Under this initiative, the Our Kids Centre first and foremost aims to promote its children’s physical and cultural development, health, and psychosocial rehabilitation.
Another mission of the project is to implement the provisions of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, particularly Article 29 on ‘the development of the child’s personality, talents and mental and physical abilities to their fullest potential,’ and Article 31 on ‘the right of the child to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts.’
