Match with Supraśl Team

1mFor many years already there have been many sport events between teams of "Diamond" Center and the Orphanage in Supraśl. Until now the Orphanage was the only organizer of all the events. We have decided to pay back to our great partners and we have invited them to Białystok for a football game. It took place on 13th of February 2010 in the Sport Hall of Public School 37. "Diamond" Center was represented by "Shelter" Club Team. Match was held in a very nice atmosphere and gave us all a lot of positive emotions. For the hosts the final result was very satisfactory, and for the guests the match brought important information to build strong football team in the future. Taking advantage of that note we would like to thank very much Mr. Tadeusz Gaszyński and Mrs. Elżbieta Ignatowicz - the Directors of Public School 37, for renting their sport hall for free.


Table tennis and much more... in Suprasl

1mThe youth from "Shelter" Club in Bialystok was invited by the Orphanage in Suprasl for table tennis game. Representatives of both education centers seriously took this sport's challenge, so they were well prepared. During single matches, one could feel great engagement of the players with the spirit of real sport competition. Boys from "Shelter" Club managed to win over the Suprasl Team 4:2. After the game they all had nice time with some music. We are very glad that it was another event building friendly relationships between pupils of those two institutions.




6m"Diamond" Center has established another Club at "Dziesięciny" District in Białystok. It is youth club called "Shelter" at 15 Kalinowa Street. This initiative came from the need of a group of teenagers from high schools to spend some time together. The group of young people hanging around the area was the serious problem for local society. Our idea was very positively received by the Management Board of Apartment Enterprise "Railway Family".
     For the needs of the Club we have received two pieces of apartment. One of them needed much renovation. We have made it together with the workers of "Dziesięciny" District Administration. Young people all together and with a lot of zeal painted the rooms and made order after renovation.
     Establishing of the "Shelter" Club is the example of partnership and cooperation between various institutions in practical solving of social problems. There was also Białystok City Council, who supported our activities.
     What is the opinion of the youth about this initiative?
"If not that Club, I doubt we had anything to do. Surely we would still hang around and people would carry on complaining." - this is the statement of one of the teenagers, who took part in the renovation of a new Club.
