European Comission Erasmus+ BASKETFORALL Project
The Project Proposal drafted by our Projects Coordinator and Trustee Emir Turam and his professional team has been accepted and found eligible for co-funding by the EACEA in Brussells.
Our Erasmus+ application ‘BasketForAll’ (Project Nr. 101090524) has been accepted.
We are very happy that our Erasmus+ Project application ‘BasketForAll’ which was prepared by BIDEV Project Coordinator and Trustee Emir Turam and his professional team has been accepted and found eligible for co-funding by the EACEA in Brussells. The same team will coordinate implementations of the Project.
Youth Basketball coaches generally prioritise winning over everything else. However, we strongly believe that young players growing up to be ‘good people’ is at least as important as their evolving into ‘good basketball players.’ BIDEV believes that everybody can grow up into strong individuals who provide added value to society, and utilizes basketball to help reach that goal. Our intended approach to the scope of work related to the Project is in complete harmony with our institutional goals and can be summarised as: Better coordination between public and private bodies – and also NGO’s - will help us better utilise available capacities to the better benefits of all stakeholders – specially disadvantaged children.
The BasketForAll Project was developed to integrate youth coaches and trainers within this vision. Various national and international workshops have been planned that will pave the way.
We built a 3 country international consortium – the duration will ve 12 months
Klatovy Basketball Club of the Czech Republic and the Usmivka Sports Club of Bulgaria came together under the leadership of BIDEV.
The co-funding contract of BasketForAll was signed by the European Commission on NOvember 20th, 2022, and we went to work right after New Year. (Please follow Project related Works and developments on our website and social media channels.)
We strongly believe that successful implementation of the detailed project plan will increase international awareness for BIDEV and widen its sphere of influence. We are starting out with strong support from Professional experts. We will be monitoring project implementations of distinguished professionals with the Steering Committee that has been formed within BIDEV which will also facilitate seamless coordination towards successful outcomes.
The medium term goal of BIDEV will be to utilise accummulated experience towards building BIDEV’s own in-house Project management team in the future.
