THE LITTLE AMBASSADOR FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

The complex activities of the project “Little Ambassador for a Healthy Lifestyle” (08.4.2-ESFA-K-629-02-0009) will analyse children’s profile in several aspects: physical (activity, healthy eating, balance of activities and rest, personal and environment cleanliness), emotional (feelings, emotions, experiences) together with social development and cognitive (self-esteem, positive thinking). The project aims to develop the correct ergonomics and habits of life, to teach regular sports, under the constant supervision of physiotherapists (sports instructors). Children are taught not only movements, but also the knowledge they need to integrate into the everyday life. Special, up-to-date, individualized exercise programs are created for children, so that they could also do them at home.

The project consists of activities that form the basis of the child’s behaviour and lifestyle, which will later determine a person’s health and quality of life:

  • “Growing up to be an Ambassador”
  • “Growing while actively moving”
  • “Growing confidently and positively”
  • “Growing while researching”

Project activities will be organized and implemented by 19 partners. The size of the partnership is based on the assessment of the objectives of the activities, includes a broad institutional structure (educational institutions at all levels, involves private health centres, communities, etc. NGOs), represents the interests of the main groups influencing the project. By participating in the project, the partners assume the risks related to the implementation of the activities, integrated responsibility for the involvement of the participants in the activities, and efficient use of the infrastructure.

The target group – children and adolescents. Project duration – 24 months. The project is implemented in Siauliai city and district municipalities.

The project is funded by the EU Structural Funds.

26-06-2020| CAMP “GROWING WHILE EXPLORING”

On 2020 June 23-25, the first camp of the project “Little Ambassador for a Healthy Lifestyle” “Growing while researching” took place. This, the first of the Little Ambassadors, not only improved physically, but also learned many new things about oneself, made new friends. During the camp, the children tested their strength by going on three different hikes, playing sports, playing team games, and riding horses. The little ambassadors got acquainted with their emotions and their changes in different situations through virtual reality, and together with a doctor they got acquainted with the basics of first aid. Perhaps most of the Little Ambassadors were waiting for the arrival of Chef Cosimo, with whom the children made ravioli with spinach, healthy pizza and gnocchi. Congratulations to our coolest Little Ambassadors for a healthy lifestyle who grew during the project!
