In order to promote a healthy lifestyle and for the development of young rugby players, Vakhtang Mdzinarishvili, in cooperation with the co-founder of the investment holding “Smart Capital Group”- Mikheil Chkhartishvili, set a foundation to “Brothers” rugby school 5 years ago. Throughout this period, the coach of the team set a goal not only to boost children’s education in sports and promote a healthy lifestyle, but also to raise young rugby players into responsible citizens. That is why, under the initiative of “Smart Capital Group” and Rugby School “Brothers”, a series of awareness rising meetings were launched, within the frames of which, children will discuss interesting and necessary topics with invited guests throughout the year. The initiative aims at introducing children to the goals of sustainable development and raise their awareness in this field.
The series of meetings of the mentioned project was opened by the environmentalist – Ana Trapaidze, who shared the importance of environmental protection and waste management through interactive and fun games with little rugby players.
“In addition to a healthy lifestyle, it is necessary to share the right values with children for the proper upbringing of the future generation. I think that one of the important directions of our school, in addition to sports development, is the correct upbringing of children with values, based on goals of sustainable development. We have a number of interesting meetings ahead of us on topics such as gender equality, human rights, animal protection, road safety and others,” – noted Vakhtang Mdzinarishvili.
On the same day, within the framework of cooperation with the plastic waste processing company Polivim LLC, a box for collecting plastic bottles was installed on the territory of the sports field. From now on, throughout training, sports fans will collect plastic bottles in this box for further recycling.
