  • Funding of various children’s sporting activities such as Balkhash children’s football team, karate club, ice hockey, as well as the local youth parachute club;
  • Installation of hot water and heating system in the Kounrad village kindergarten;
  • Funding for various construction works in the Balkhash orphanage;
  • Assistance to children from deprived families with regards to medical bills or equipment as well as school clothes.

In October 2016, our team hosted a site visit by 20 local children from Kounrad village. The children were shown the activities on site and we demonstrated the company’s focus on protecting the environment.
