Novak Djokovic spent Wednesday in Belgrade where he visited the Anton Skala elementary school. As part of his charity foundation, the recent Australian Open champion and world No. 1 donated over $65K towards the school’s reconstruction of a playground for the kids.
“The donation will enable kids to play joyously and learn in a better environment,” Djokovic said.
“The idea behind the realization of the ‘Anton Skala’ school yard project is to enable children to play in the park with their friends in a safe environment. So far, they have not been able to do so because the school yard was deserted, and there were no funds to complete the project. With our help, no later than springtime, children will be able to enjoy and socialize not only with their school friends but also with the children from the neighborhood,” added Novak.
Accompanied by his mom and girlfriend and foundation director, Jelena Ristic, Novak toured the school yard with a school principal Igor Raicevic and teachers, and even danced with the students.
Djokovic’s next scheduled event is in Dubai at the end of the month.
