Djokovic set up the Novak Djokovic Foundation to develop early childhood education projects in Serbia. It also gives grants for educational initiatives with the aim to help children.
It was founded in 2007 to invest in early childhood education with a focus on Serbia and over there only one in two children have access to preschool education.
The belief was that early education can transform the lives of children as well as entire communities. The goal is to create best-in-class programs and learning environments in Serbia.
The Foundation has built and/or repurposed at least 18 schools and helped over 10,000 children to date.
Djokovic set it up because he wanted to do something for the children. In August 2015, Djokovic was appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.
