Celebrating the International Children's Day

Added 2. 7. 2015

On the occasion of International Children's Day, children from several orphanages enjoyed great events organized for them by ŠKODA AUTO and AC Sparta Praha. The whole day was marked by celebrations! We have visited the children's care home in Krnsko while kids from other four orphanages visited the AC Sparta Praha football stadium. The leading Czech sport club offered them a tour of the stadium facilities, the children had an opportunity to learn details about the life of footballers and people working for the club - custodians, sports masseur, lawn-maker and others. Watch a short video here: Both groups of children later met in the National Technical Museum for a programme organized by our partner ŠKODA AUTO. 100 children from 5 care homes had an opportunity to meet the foundation's patron, Tereza Maxová and actively explore the museum’s workshops. Tereza says: "Children's Day is an opportunity to give all children a feeling of being accepted and embraced. Considering the foundation’s objective, we aimed to provide this experience for those who need it the most - abandoned children. Besides entertainment, the event was also an opportunity to learn and discover and find and inspiration for a future career. It's an amazing thing to see those moments when you steer an excitement and interest for new things in the kids.” Watch a short video here: Terezie Sverdlinová, Tereza Maxová Foundation director, continues: "With our partners, we wanted to celebrate the Children's Day in a way that is fun, interesting and educational at the same time. We have been collaborating with ŠKODA AUTO on the project "Rozjedu to!" It encourages and provides better education for disadvantaged children aged 11-15 years and aims to helping them to find their potential and choose a career. With help mentors, trained educators and psychologists, the project motivates children and promotes personal development. Hence the celebration that offers them an opportunity to learn and enjoy themselves. We hope they had great time. " We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all partners involved in this event, namely ŠKODA AUTO as, National Technical Museum, C & B Group Inc., AC Sparta Praha, Smilebox & Sweetlife. Thank you for making this great day happen!
