Group TPV, an innovative and high-tech corporation from Novo mesto with the majority of its activities in the automotive industry and with over 1200 employees in Slovenia and abroad, after a few years, again became the general sponsor of the Novo mesto Women’s Volleyball Club, entering the new season with a brand new name – TPV Volley Novo mesto.
TPV has been, through its existence, closely involved in the cooperation with the local environment. Social responsibility is considered to be its moral commitment, which is implemented through the support of sports, cultural, humanitarian, educational and environmental projects, ensuring the development of the environment in which they operate, the environment of their employees.
Social responsibility towards children and youth is particularly important as they tend to spend more and more time in the virtual world. Therefore, the TPV Group emphasize that also companies have to do more to help them direct back to socializing in sports, where the youth learn of co-operation, positive competitiveness, and also that both victories and defeats are part of our lives, by which we must be able to pick up and continue with even greater eagerness.
TPV supported the Women’s Volleyball Club Novo mesto for many years before and on its 30th anniversary, they decided to re-support them again. ŽOK Novo mesto has also been chosen because it is one of the role models in the field of promoting sports among youth. It organizes a free volleyball training for girls in elementary schools in Novo mesto and its surroundings. It also proves its innovativeness with its Mala šola športa, a multidisciplinary project, in which girls and boys in lower grades of elementary school are acquainted with a wide variety of sports and training adapted to the youngest and their general motor abilities. The club has also proved to be an excellent organizer of various volleyball competitions in both indoor and beach volleyball in the last few years. By organizing and participating in various international tournaments, they provide networking, acquisition and exchange of experience aswell.
TPV enters into the story primarily with the aim of strengthening the promotion of healthy life among the youth. “It is an important decision and a big step towards the development of women’s volleyball in the city of Novo mesto, the region and the country. The club, in many innovative ways, encourages the youth to pursue activities, healthy lifestyle and strengthens their sport spirit, significantly contributing to the development of a healthy and responsible society of the future. TPV will undoubtedly stand by them and support them.”- said the new president of TPV Volley Novo mesto, Mr Vladimir Bahč Jr., at the signing of the agreement.
“The youth is our future and we believe that by promoting sports activities, companies can contribute to a healthy and vital young generation, ensuring better tomorrow,” stressed the Group president and CEO, Marko Gorjup, M.Sc.
