"Andara plus" has participated in organizing and sponsoring sports camps for children. The aim of the camps: to popularize a healthy and active lifestyle among children and young people, to develop independence and self-confidence, to improve physical fitness, to improve communication skills with peers, to introduce participants to the basics of healthy eating, to create an idea of their body's possibilities. The most important tasks of the camp are to increase the functional abilities of athletes, to strengthen children's health, to strengthen friendly relations between athletes, to develop perseverance and physical characteristics, to improve knowledge about sports. Besides that, the camps help to encourage the idea that sports and leisure are a great alternative to sitting at home and other vices.
"Andara plus" by sponsoring children sports teams, creating brand and providing new visual identity promotes development of new sports teams in rural areas. Sports teams branding, having teams’ t-shirts and other necessary equipment, raises confidence in the team members and belief in themselves.
Usually small schools in rural areas don’t have additional finance for team branding, therefore "Andara plus" by sponsoring and designing team sports clothes have encouraged children for higher self-confidence, stronger faith and better play. It has helped to
attract better trainers and to improve overall team performance.

Soft skills, according to ESCO’s (European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations) definition, are the cornerstone for the personal development of a person; the building blocks for the development of the “hard” skills and competences required to succeed in the labour market. Success in the labour market is seen to be more and more dependent upon possessing the hybrid skills – technical and soft skills – that employers increasingly value. Soft skills can be distinguished into personal and interpersonal skills or interpersonal qualities and personal attributes that one possesses. This conceptualises soft skills in somewhat abstract terms and characterises them as innate. The idea on which this project is based sees soft skills as having “hard” component, which makes it possible to develop them by learning to use appropriate tools, procedures and methods. https://ulisseproject.eu/

Young Ordinary and Disabled sports Athletes’ MENTORS (YODA MENTORS) will be a pilot programme to contribute towards the establishment of a dual-career framework in participants’ organizations and countries, which could ultimately be scaled-up across the EU. The project opens the way for a new dialogue among mentors and student-athletes from different countries (Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Latvia, and Lithuania) allowing for cross-border matching and thus expanding the range of experts available as mentors for athletes to find the perfect match, regardless of their country of residence. The strong relationship between mentors and athletes forged through the programme fosters networking in a way that would not be possible without such initiative.

The proposed project titled LifeAge aims to contribute to raising awareness of the need for physical activity as the basis of healthy lifestyle by changing habits of adults and elderly. The reason for undertaking this project is to tackle the challenges of growing obesity and assess the health consequences of ageing and sedentary lifestyle among adults and elderly in developing countries involved in the project and to raise awareness about importance of active lifestyle and healthy nutrition in all project partner countries. This will be done by including mature adults (50 – 64 years and +65 years; primarily those who are overweight, obese, low strength, sarcopenia or with low level of physical activity) into regular sports activities accompanied by indoor and outdoor activities and workshops on healthy nutrition. It combines physical activity and balanced diet as the most effective way to increase general health, mental development and performance in Adults and Elderly and reduce the risk of chronic diseases, sarcopenia and low strength and functional capacity.
