At the beginning of the war, a shelter for internally displaced persons was created for those who lost their homes based on the gymnasium. Families with children came here from Kharkiv, Kyiv region, Chernihiv region, Izyum, and Mariupol, and they have nowhere to return today. They are adjusting their lives in Transcarpathia, looking for work, and preparing for the new school year.
"Thanks to the financial support of the Tolk Group and the help of the Charitable Foundation "The Future for Children", we now have a class with seven computers in one of the buildings of the gymnasium, - says Lyubov Kovach, director of the Nizhnyobistriv Gymnasium. - In the classroom, new electrical wiring was made, a dedicated high-speed Internet line was installed, a wifi router was installed, and computers complete with headphones, thanks to which children will be able not only to master the school program but also to attend additional online classes, improving their skills with individual disciplines. Even such "little things" as a new magnetic marker board and blinds on the windows will contribute to a productive learning atmosphere.
Creating conditions for full-time living and education of children became the task of the "The Future for Children" Charitable Foundation and the Foundation's partner, the Tolk Group of Companies, which at one time took the initiative to allocate funds to support the Foundation's activities from each bill paid by non-household consumers of the Group.
"From pre-war times and especially now, the Tolk group systematically takes care of those who are especially in need. Therefore, helping to set up a computer class for children so they could continue their high-quality education while currently away from home was our social position," Nataliya Nimeets, director of Zakarpattiaenergozbut LLC (The Tolk Group), said during the opening of the class. She also added that the Group's support of the gymnasium and the activities of the Foundation do not end there.
The Group of energy suppliers Tolk unites six companies - "Augusta" LLC, "Zakarpattiaenergosbut" LLC, "Volynelectrozbut" LLC, "Tolk Petroleum" LLC, INTRA ASSETS S.R.L. (Moldova) and Tolk EU s.r.o.
