Jointly with FC Shakhtar and the Ministry of Digital Transformation, the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation presented a unique educational project involving football stars


Jointly with the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine, the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation and FC Shakhtar created an educational TV-series "Digital Physical Education for School Children with Sports Stars." 

The purpose of the series is to help children do exercises during the quarantine and to motivate students who are isolated from teams to do individual sports and have a healthy lifestyle.

It is a series of 12 YouTube videos. Their main characters are the stars of FC Shakhtar Andriy Piatov and Serhiy Kryvtsov. The star comic from the Mamakhokhotala Show, Oleh Masliuk and Yevhenii Yanovych, are the presenters. 

"You need to be particularly thoughtful for your health during the quarantine. And the joint project of the Foundation, FC Shakhtar and the Ministry of Digital Transformation does not just encourage schoolchildren to do this - it engages them. Digital Physical Culture is a star format as it involves such sports stars like Andrii Pyatov and Serhii Kryvtsov. They are also joined by Oleh Masliuk and Yevhenii Yanovych, theTV-comedy stars from the Mamakhokhotala Show. This brilliant team of four made the content of the series cool and very light and stylistically fun. Children are directly involved in what is happening. In addition, they are waiting for challenges and flash mobs from Andrii Pyatov and Serhii Kryvtsov. The winners will receive sports prizes. Watch, participate and take care of your health during the quarantine," Natalia Yemchenko, a member of the Supervisory Board of the Foundation said during the presentation of the series in the Cabinet of Ministers.

Children will be able to do exercises, try some interesting exercises and  gain new knowledge together with their sports idols. Andrii Pyatov and Serhii Kryvtsov will share life hacks and tell how to choose the right diet and relaxation. They will tell you how to get rid of bad habits and demonstrate that there is a lot of new and exciting things outside the world of gadgets. The uniqueness of the project is that the entire series of 12 and 40 videos was created in just 24 hours!

"Such online classes are so desired as never before. We need to keep fit and try to motivate people to do them. This is because sport implies health, immune stimulation. And immunity in this situation is the most important thing," Andrii Pyatov, the Shakhtar captain.

"It is impossible to change the situation in Ukraine single-handedly now. But you can join forces to change your attitude to what is happening. I believe that our joint project will serve as such a tool," Valeriya Ionan, Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation regarding  European integration, said.

The lessons will be published on YouTube channels and pages of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation and FC Shakhtar in social networks, as well as on Action. Digital Education portal from the Ministry of Digital Transformation. Furthermore, online broadcasts of the motivational meetings with the stars of FC Shakhtar will be held on the Foundation's Facebook page in the near future.
