Radio and Television of Serbia about the Endowment

Shortly after the founding of the "Petar Mandic" Endowment, an article by Presbyter Oliver Subotic, one of its founders, was published on the website of the Public Service broadcaster of Serbia (you can read the entire article on the RTS website).

Historically speaking, the article represents the first media publication about the "Petar Mandic" Endowment and summarises the core of the entire project.

From the content published on 6th June 2021, a little more than a month after the Endowment's registration, the public was able to learn more about it as an organisation dedicated to nurturing the memory of Nikola Tesla's ancestors, through goals that are carried out in a modern context.

The article talks about the desire to promote the character and work of Nikola Tesla's ancestors in a way that uses them as a paradigm, starting with the name of the Endowment, all the way to its values, goals and mission.

Presbyter Oliver Subotic further points out that the Endowment’s main operational goal is to build an ethno-museum complex in honour of Tesla's ancestors in the village of Radoinja near Nova Varos.

The main strategic goals, again based on the life and work of Tesla's ancestors, include providing scholarships for students without one or both parents, popularising the dialogue between religion, philosophy and science, developing parenting schools, raising social awareness regarding a balanced education, global promotion of the best that the Serbian people have to offer, as well as the development of good neighbourly relations.

Finally, Presbyter Oliver Subotic invitesd all people of good will to join the project of the "Petar Mandic" Endowment.
