More than 300 children of employees of Zaporizhzhia enterprises of Metinvest Group – “Zaporizhstal”, “Zaporozhogneupor”, “Zaporozhcoke” and Zaporizhzhia Foundry and Mechanical Plant – will start their first school year with school kits from the Company.
Despite the full-scale war, Metinvest continues its long-standing tradition of presenting useful school supplies to employees’ children who are going to school for the first time. This year, over 300 girls and boys, whose parents work in Zaporizhzhia at the Company’s enterprises, received school kits as part of the corporate program “The first time – in the first grade”. In the gift sets, there are slant-ruled and squared notebooks and their folders, pens, pencils, drawing sets and bright diaries.
“Starting school is a special moment of our children’s growing up. To support the families of employees at this important moment, Metinvest annually helps prepare first-graders for school. As always, the set is formed taking into account the needs of schoolchildren and contains everything necessary for a bright and successful start of schooling”, – said Roman Slobodyanyuk, General Director of “Zaporizhstal” of the Metinvest Group.
In addition to traditional school kits, the children of “Zaporizhstal” employees, who celebrate their birthday on the eve of the Knowledge Day, received personal gifts from the General Director of “Zaporizhstal” – a set of interactive games.
In addition, for the Knowledge Day for children of Metinvest employees aged 7 to 11, during the last week of summer, Metinvest held an interesting online adventure quest “Around the World”, during which children immersed themselves in the atmosphere of travel, and got to know countries that have remarkable objects of Metinvest steel.
Let us recall, that Metinvest launched “The first time – in the first grade” support program for schoolchildren of employees in 2012. Depending on their age, the children of Metinvest employees annually received office supplies and school backpacks for the school year. Despite the full-scale war and all the difficulties caused by it, the Company continues to implement its social corporate program for the second year in a row, but with a forced change of scale, focused exclusively on first-graders. This year, school kits from Metinvest received almost 3 000 first-graders starting their studies in the cities of the Company’s presence.
