Location and general information
Physical education is compulsory for all schoolchildren in Armenia and one of their favourites. However, a lack of equipment and the poor condition of sports facilities in schools make it difficult for lessons to take place properly.
Regularly practising sport helps young people learn values such as respect, team spirit, regular attendance, politeness and personal investment, which are all essential for social and professional integration.
The Armenian Fund for Sustainable Development has always been closely involved in education. Its Generation Sport 2021 project follows on from Generation Sport 2020, which was extremely successful nationwide and resulted in 16 schools receiving sports equipment.
Schools will be invited to create a short video about the school, school life, the pupils’ motivation for applying and their sporting achievements, as well as their involvement in the community and in protecting the environment. The Armenian Fund for Sustainable Development and the Armenian Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport will select 25 schools to receive sports equipment.
The Armenian Fund for Sustainable Development will organise several events to encourage young people to take part in sports, including visits by sports personalities to motivate them to reach their full potential. A sports competition for schoolchildren will also be held in partnership with the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport.
