The national movement ,,I’m living healthy, too!” – SETS

11 years ago, PRAIS Foundation launched   the national movement ,,I’m living healthy, too!” – SETS, an initiative based on its own innovative methodologies for fast learning and activation of pupils, methodologies internationally recognized as models of good practice.

The SETS objectives are: promoting a balanced lifestyle and well-being among children aged 6 to 12, primary school pupils, informing them and their families, through teachers, about the benefits of a balanced diet, good hydration, quality of sleep, personal hygiene, daily physical exercise, sports, quality time spent with family, friends, colleagues, care for nature and moral values, in a holistic approach: mind, body, spirit. The social inclusion of children from vulnerable backgrounds is also an achieved goal.

The SETS movement is based on the public-private partnership, an alliance of values composed of institutional partners, medical organizations, the scientific council, sports universities, private partners. Since 2019, the PRAIS Foundation has as sole sponsor for this project the company Nestlé Romania – Founding Partner of the SETS movement since its launch, SETS movement becoming part of the global project: Nestlé for Healthier Kids.

At the same time, the national movement “I’m living healthy, too!” – SETS is aligned and supports the objectives of the global campaigns of the World Health Organization (WHO): “Together we fight noncommunicable diseases” – #beatNDCs and the Global Action Plan on Physical Activity 2018-2030 – “More active people for a healthier world” – “Let’s be active!”

SETS movement has been an active member of the international network Youth Health Community for 3 years, and since its launch it has been a member of the Epode International Network – EIN, the largest global obesity prevention network that has brought together 34 national programs with similar methodologies from 23 member countries. In 2012, the projects from the EIN network, of which SETS is part, were designated by DG SANCO as “Best Health promotion European project”, and the interventions on physical activities within SETS movement have been awarded as “model of good practice”.
