In order to contribute to development of sport and promotion of healthy lifestyles through promotion of sports among children and youth and creation of conditions for practicing sports, FORS Montenegro implemented two projects within which two basketball courts were renovated in Nikšić.
A new basketball court was built in the yard of the Primary School “Ratko Žarić“ for students, athletes, amateur sportsmen and all other citizens. It is equipped with rubber base, baskets, spotlights and the audience seating. In addition to that, a contribution to the achievement of the goal of the project was made through series of activities directed at educating children and youth on the importance of sport and healthy lifestyles.
The project of renovation of the basketball court has been financially supported through Calls for proposals for the allocation of the part of lottery income for 2015 and 2016, Call of the Municipality of Nikšić for allocation of funds to non-governmental organisations for 2016. Basketball Association of Montenegro provided baskets and other partners which cordially supported building of the court are: Public Waterworks Company Nikšić, Akropolis doo, Lisina doo, Trgotehna doo, Ramel doo and the Municipality of Nikšić. The idea for such a court was born a long time ago, and the process from fundraising to completing the project lasted for a year.
Within the Calls for proposals for the allocation of the part of lottery income for 2017, FORS Montenegro provided funding or renovation of another basketball court in the yard of the Primary School “Olga Golović“ in Nikšić, so youth and other basketball fans got another court with adequate base.
