LadyFinn-Thanks for all the articles, photos and information. It really does give a nice perspective of just how busy Victoria and Daniel are. I was really impressed with Victoria's speech on the Baltic Sea. It's nice to see someone really championing environmental issues.

The Crown Princess Couple's Foundation supports Star for Life -program with giving grants.
On Thursday before their visit to AstraZeneca, Victoria and Daniel visited Öjersjö Brunn School in Partille to take part in the school's work with the Star for Life. The school is one of the pilot schools working since 2014 with the Star for Life's Swedish school program. Star for Life has developed a method to give students the mental exercise to strengthen their self-esteem, articulate their own visions and dreams and then constructively able to activate their drive.
Music teacher and the Star for Life coach Helena Wattström spoke about the work with Star for Life which is used in grades 8, 9, and special schools. The students showed their work in Drömböcker (Dream Books) and canvas.

Victoria and Daniel visited also in the end of their day Kodcentrum in Gothenburg, which they also support with their Foundation. Secretary General Emelie told about the business and how support from the Crown Princess Couple's Foundation is used to introduce as many children as possible into programming.
Two of the participants, Clara Tunney and Victor Lauden, showed some of their projects in Scratch, including a drawing program and a space game. Prince Daniel was especially curious to test the games and was interested to try to create his own games.
- This would be something for Estelle in the future, he commented.
They met also all children and volunteers in place. The Crown Princess couple praised Kodcentrum's volunteers for their commitment and the importance that they have to get kids interested in programming.
The day's theme was to play Robot Buddy. The Crown Princess Couple got along with kids to give commands to a human robot, Kodcentrum's teacher Lisa. By using commands such as "step forward", "turn left" or "turn right", the task was to guide the robot through a labyrinth. The kids also got to decide their own commands, such as "crawl under the table" and "say ouch". Prince Daniel chose that the robot should raise her hand and wave. The game offered many laughs and never seemed to end, especially as some of the children came to the command "go back to the start."

On Thursday Crown Princess Victoria and prince Daniel visited Öjersjö to take note of how secondary school pupils work on fundamental values ​​through music project Star for Life. Music teacher Helena Wattström described together with the students how they cooperate with schools including South Africa, to increase both the Swedish and South African students' self-esteem.
The visit was surrounded by very hush hush at the Victoria and Daniel's explicit request - something that even the chefs at restaurant Marcos got experience. On Tuesday, they were approached by the City of Gothenburg, to cook Lebanese buffet for 16 people.
- We did not talk much about it. But it feels great, and a great honor, says Benjamin Jamin, who runs the restaurant.
Was it nervous to cook for royals?
- No, we are Syrians from Lebanon so this with Lebanese food is something we can do, says Benjamin, laughing.
Benjamin's mother Hatune Jamin, who also works at the restaurant, saw to it that the Marcos staff gave Crown Princess Victoria a gift.
- She got a rosary with a cross and an angel made of glass, because she is pregnant again and so.

The Crown Princess Couple's Foundation, Stiftelsen Läxhjälpen (Homework Foundation) and Samsung are now together in a pilot project to welcome the newly arrived refugee children to Sweden. The aim is to quickly introduce the newly arrived children in a regular school class and invite them to participate in the Stiftelsen Läxhjälpen's work. The pilot project will start in Husbygårdsskolan in Husby.
The school faces enormous challenges with newly arrived children. The Swedish National Agency for Education estimates that it now takes up to three to four years for a newly arrived pupil to get into a regular class. Therefore, Stiftelsen Läxhjälpen together with Samsung and Crown Princess Couple's Foundation started the pilot project "Welcome to Sweden". The aim is to effectively help the school to get the newly arrived children to start a regular school class and facilitate their integration.

This year's honey from the Crown Princess Couple's own garden next to Haga Palace is on sale at the Royal Gift Shops. Victoria and Daniel got 100000 bees as a wedding gift from the Swedish Beekeepers Association. Svenskt Sigill donated some years ago two additional communities to Victoria and Daniel, there are now around 200000 bees at Haga. The hives in the park are managed by bee expert Lotta Fabricius Kristiansen.
Victoria is an honorary member of The Swedish Beekeepers Association. Since Estelle is the Duchess of Östergötland, two of the queen bees are from there.
The net proceeds of the sale go to the Crown Princess Couple's Foundation.

The Board of the Crown Princess Couple's Foundation has decided to provide funding for 10 projects.
The Foundation awards grants annually to projects promoting good health and strengthening fellowship among children and young people in Sweden.
The grants are given to four projects that have not received funding before, and six projects have been granted continued funding after evaluation.
"It is gratifying that many of the projects that the Foundation has previously granted aid have done so well that we have chosen to continue to contribute to their work. I feel very confident for the social strength of innovation that prevails in Sweden right now", says Pernilla Bard, a member of the Crown Princess Foundation expert council.

The Crown Princess Couple's Foundation supports Hej Främling! (Hello Stranger!) project. The founders of Hej Främling, Emma Arnesson and Anne Lundberg were just awarded as the Fellow Human Beings of the Year by Aftonbladet at their Svenska Hjältar (Swedish Heroes) program.
Swedish Heroes award is a prize awarded to individuals who through their extraordinary efforts have helped other people.
The motivation from the jury: "Emma and Anne are heroes because they early looked to provide asylum seekers in Jämtland a meaningful life and a chance to get to know their surroundings. With sports and cultural activities as tools they create the conditions for the people of Jämtland and refugees to meet".

SVT has also interested in the work of Hej Främling! and plan to make three full hour programs about refugee reception and integration work in Jämtland in general and Östersund in particular, says Göran Danasten, project manager at SVT. Both enthusiasts of Hej Främling! project and a number of people at the reception center, which are at various stages of the asylum process will be depicted in the programs.

Victoria visited this evening Futebol dá força/IFK Tumba football club's practice for girls.
To promote girls' physical and mental health and the integration Futebol dá Força operates open soccer practice - Futebol Aberto - where girls in socio-economically disadvantaged areas can play football without any requirements. Participants don't have to pay a fee, register their presence, to belong to an association or have any equipment or prior knowledge of football to come and play with Futebol dá força's female leaders and football coaches. Futebol dá força's goal is to offer girls a safe meeting place and platform where they can develop as individuals and as a team, where they with a FDF coach's support improve their self-confidence and tools for how they can increase their future opportunities and realize their dreams.

From coach Melissa Besara's Twitter
"Honored that the Princess took her time to come to us in Tumba to see my practices. I'm so proud of my team".

That's great! I wonder why the name of the association is in portuguese... Has that something to do with Victoria' brazilian roots?

It has nothing to do with Victoria.
Futebol dá força was founded in Mozambique in 2012 by Cecilia Andrén Nyström. After having coached girls in football in Sweden and seen the potential to use football as a tool to strengthen self-confidence, self-esteem and so much more, Cecilia was convinced that football can change the world. She went to the third poorest country in the world, Mozambique, simply to try if the idea could be put into practice. She started Futebol dá força, which means 'football gives strength'. ... After the success in Mozambique, Futebol dá força has been launched in Zambia, Sweden and Finland - an amazing development only three years from the start! 8000 girls today have something fun to do in their free time and have a meeting place where they can meet and talk with other girls and get a role model in their coach.
More info about Futebol dá força

More photos of the visit at court website
Futebol dá força Sweden was founded in 2013. The training always starts with a "check in" where everyone tells how their day has been and about their feeling before the day's training. The founder Cecilia Andrén Nyström got the Compass Rose Scholarship from the King's Young Leadership Foundation in 2014.
