MK Group provides free winter holidays for children from Kosovo and Metohija for ninth year in a row

2/4/2018 KOPAONIK – The best thirty elementary school pupils from Kosovo and Metohija have stayed on Kopaonik during the seven-day winter holiday for the ninth consecutive year as a reward for excellent achievement accomplished in this academic year. 

The pupils from 5th to 8 th grade had an opportunity to enjoy free ski school, while in the afternoon they have participated in numerous sports and recreational activities such as swimming and bowling within the hotel complex MK Mountain Resort on Kopaonik.

“We are proud to organize free winter holidays on Kopaonik for the ninth year in a row for the best 30 pupils from Kosovo and Metohija. In this way, we want to show that the company MK Group recognizes and rewards motivation and desire to study as well as pays attention to the development of our children. Most of these young people have not had the opportunity to enjoy winter holidays so far and because of that, I'm glad we were able to provide numerous sports and recreational activities on Kopaonik. I am especially glad that some of them have been skiing for the first time" said Miodrag Kostić, President of the MK Group.

The fact that support of large companies means a lot to the children from Kosovo and Metohija has been confirmed by Lazar Danić, a teacher of the Elementary School Kralj Milutin in Gračanica. "Our pupils rarely have the opportunity to experience the magic of mountain activities and to attend the professional ski school and therefore we are very pleased that the company MK Group has recognized once again the importance of this type of investment in young people. This winter holidays have been especially important to the children, because in addition to winter activities, they had an opportunity to enjoy swimming, bowling and other recreational activities" said Mr. Danić.

The care for children and youth represents one of the basic focus of the company MK Group regarding the social responsibility. In addition to providing the winter holidays for children from Kosovo and Metohija, the company MK Group has organized more than 460 socially responsible activities over the last 5 years.  Some of them are the construction of the Youth House at SOS Children's Village, establishment of the Parent's Home for Children Diagnosed with Cancer, as well as support of many educational programs aimed for young people.
