19 JULY 2015 / Sport Paths 2015

The first phase of the Sport Paths program, which is a grant initiative undertaken by the SNF and is implemented by the NGO “Regeneration & Progress”, has been successfully completed.

Sport Paths is a multifaceted athletic and educational program, addressed to children ages 5 to 16, mostly residing in remote Greek islands. Apart from the athletic activities, the program also includes chess games, meeting with Paralympic athletes, lectures and presentations on first aid and the benefits of a healthy nutrition. The program’s goal is to introduce children to various activities, in which they don’t usually have the opportunity to participate.

Sport Paths 2015 took off on June 28th and was completed on July 17th, 2015. The program ran in 18 islands with the participation of 1,100 children.
