To ensure a professional approach to youth’s overall development, we run several complementary programmes at VIIE. Most of our programmes are focused on the development of the child directly, but other programmes focus on the training of volunteers and staff and integrating the community.

Health and physical activities
Physical activity is bodily movement of any type. It may include recreational, fitness and sport activities such as running, jumping rope, playing cricket, soccer, lifting weights, as well as daily activities such as walking to the store, taking the stairs or raking the leaves. Physical education produces important health benefits. During our physical activities, we stimulate participants to be active at an intensity that increases their heart rate and produces heavier than normal breathing.
VIIE recommends school-age children at least 20 minutes of physical activity per day while avoiding prolonged periods of inactivity. Ideally every child should be active several hours a day. We stimulate children to be active during their school day by attending physical classes, walking or biking to school, and participating in recreational sports and plays before, during, and after school. Parents and grandparents are urged to get active with their children. Teachers should stimulate them to be active in the classroom and during recess..
The benefits of regular physical activity include:
· Reduction of risk for overweight, diabetes and other chronic diseases
· Improved academic performance
· Building confidence: sports help children to feel better about themselves
· Reduction of the risks of depression and stress-effects
· Preparation of children to be productive, healthy members of society
· Improvement of overall quality of life.
