The international charity Parimatch Foundation, which does its best to improve the health and well-being of society by providing children with equal opportunities and access to sports, continues to provide equipment to educational institutions. 30 educational institutions in Ukraine can get their own sports set, which they can use in physical education lessons.
Each set is adapted for the modular system of the National Academy of Sciences (New Ukrainian School) and contains all the necessary modern equipment for physical education lessons, sports, and active leisure time. These are football, basketball, volleyball, futsal balls, cones and bibs for training, sets for badminton, checkers, chess and darts, coordination ladders, and frisbees.
It should be noted, that 200 sports sets have already been sent to the regions of Ukraine as a part of the New physical education program, and more than 2,000 children have the opportunity to spend their free time more actively, especially during the summer holidays. Most of the sets were delivered to educational institutions that received internally displaced persons with children.
Sport develops not only physically, but also mentally. Games help in socializing children and teenagers, strengthening team spirit and mutual support. In wartime, sports contribute to the psychological rehabilitation and recovery of children, providing a sense of peace and an opportunity to distract from the anxious everyday life. And encourage children to physical and motor activity has been one of the main tasks of the Foundation’s programs.
