The project includes reconstruction of the Oshmyany stadium and construction of a multifunctional sports hall in Przebród. Better access to the sport facilities shall facilitate children and youth to involve in active forms of recreation.  The partners plan also to organize sports competitions on both sides on the border and take the young participants for excursions to educate them on the common history and culture.
