The "Active Children — Olympic Hopes" Programme


The nationwide sports programme, „Active Children — Olympic Hopes” was established by the Children’s Sport Foundation in cooperation with the Russian Olympic Committee and had the financial support of the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation. The programme combines the efforts of schools’ and parents’ teams, community organisations and government agencies with academic institutions and socially responsible commercial enterprises, aimed at preventing the negative consequences of a physically inactive lifestyle.

The programme’s objective is to create a favorable school environment which provides students with the recommended standard 60 minutes of physical activity every day and to raise an active and healthy new generation.

The „Active children — Olympic Hopes” Programme offers schools a simple set of tools to create a culture of physical activity:

The program has shown its effectiveness in practice, and in 2014 it became the laureate of the „Best Social Projects” award in the category „Supporting sport and a healthy lifestyle.”

The Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation was a partner of the program in 2014 and 2015.
