Tennis champion Novak Djokovic, UNICEF National Ambassador for Serbia, has recently visited a unique kindergarten or “Pcelica” in Smederevo, about 50 kilometres south east of Belgrade. The most vulnerable and marginalised groups in the Republic of Serbia attend this kindergarten, including children with developmental disorders and disabilities.
“I accepted UNICEF’s offer to become their National Ambassador for Serbia with great pleasure. The focus of my work will be on improving the conditions in which children in Serbia live, learn and grow up.” said Djokovic about his visit.
The kindergarteners were very welcoming and showed the tennis world no.1 what activities they are involved in during the day.
“I had a unique privilege to have a chance to develop my talents. But the starting line is not the same for all children. My assignment is to help UNICEF in its efforts to secure that every child has an opportunity to be included into some kind of a pre-school programme.” said Djokovic.
