Support for children and childcare institutions
Our support program for childcare institutions (family support and childhood centers) is a priority within LUKOIL’s charity activity. We decided to provide support in this area long before the topic came to the attention of society. Our goal is to create conditions that provide the best start in life for children deprived of parental care.
The Company has helped resolve numerous issues encountered by sponsored childcare institutions: buildings now have modern interiors, and classrooms are equipped with suitable furniture and educational materials.
As a result of reforms to the guardianship system, the requirements of childcare institutions in the social sector in Russia have changed. It is for this reason that LUKOIL is intensifying its activity focused on the long-term personal development of children and their socialization and adaptation to independent life.
An acute problem faced by the children we support is the lack of an appropriate adult role model to communicate with, as a result of a breakdown in parent-child relations. We attempt to help resolve this complex issue through voluntary activities involving our young professionals.
The Company continues to help the graduates of sponsored orphanages obtain an education by providing them with grants. In 2017, 49 graduates received support in this area. We provide vocational training and also pay attention to the creative development of children. Towards this end, we hold the children’s drawing contest “We’re Drawing the Kremlin” and a special program as part of the Spasskaya Tower festival.
