Defeating obesity by sports

Defeating obesity by sports

The printing and distribution of the booklet Defeating obesity by Sports aimed to create more awareness amongst the Gozitan population, especially children.  This booklet was distributed to every household in Gozo with the aim of encouraging people to adopt a healthy lifestyle.  This booklet is of interest not only to children and youths but to the whole Gozitan society so as to encourage more physical exercise which plays a very important role in decreasing and preventing obesity. Apart from the publication of this booklet, various sports activities were organised by this association.

This booklet includes information ranging from statistics on obesity to facts on how this problem can be controlled, in particular through physical exercise and a balanced diet.

This project was eligible for 95% of its funding through the eco-Gozo scheme for NGOs.
