Rosneft Allocated Over 900 Million Rubles In 2020 To Develop Children's Social Projects

01 June 2021

On International Children's Day, Rosneft sums up the results of its activities related to supporting children's social projects. At the end of 2020, the Company allocated more than 900 million rubles to construct and reconstruct sports, medical, educational, musical, and artistic institutions, to develop children's and youth sports, to support large families, orphanages, and social rehabilitation centres.

Part of the Rosneft-2022 Strategy is the commitment to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. The Company pays special attention to initiatives aimed at improving the quality of life within the corporate footprint, developing health care, science and education, culture, and environmental protection.

Under the cooperation agreements with various regions of the Russian Federation, the Company implements projects for the social infrastructure development aimed at creating a friendly environment for ensuring a full life, health protection, education, and upbringing of children.

One of the significant educational projects of the Company in 2020 was the opening of a new, modern school in Tulun, Irkutsk Region, which received the symbolic name “New Era”. Funds for the school construction were allocated in 2019 on behalf of Russian President Vladimir Putin as part of separate funding. Rosneft built and fully equipped the new school in record time – in just 300 days. To fulfil the presidential instructions, more than a thousand builders worked daily at the construction site in difficult climatic conditions at low temperatures. Today it is not just an educational institution, but a unique multifunctional complex. The school has room for 1,275 pupils. The school covering the area of almost 23,000 square metres consists of five buildings. There are 67 classrooms.

A modern school was also opened in Nizhnevartovsk with the support of Rosneft. The educational institution for 1725 students was built within the national project «Education». The school has become one of the centres of the educational, social, and cultural life of the Samotlor capital. The construction of the school was based on advanced technical solutions. The 29,000 square metre building consists of three interconnected blocks. The school has 69 classrooms with advanced teaching equipment. The school will offer comprehensive educational programmes for the integrated development of pupils.

In the Republic of Bashkortostan, such large projects have been implemented as the reconstruction of the children's health camp «Orlyonok», the construction of a family recreation park in the village of Chekmagush, the major repairs of several stadiums and children's clinics. Currently, kindergartens, playgrounds, multifunctional sports and recreation complexes, stadiums are at the final stage of construction.

In 2020, Samaraneftegaz implemented about 20 projects aimed at supporting general education, preschool institutions, and leisure facilities for children. Thanks to the oil workers support, kindergartens have been modernised, new sports and playgrounds have been built in several cities and municipal districts of the region. The enterprise has assisted at the recreation camp «Island of Childhood» in the town of Otradny. In the children's institution, the buildings and canteen facades were completely renovated, and multimedia equipment was purchased. This year, over 500 children will have a rest in the renovated camp in three shifts.

Traditionally, on International Children's Day, Rosneft enterprises hold festive events – creative and educational contests, quests, quizzes, and relay races aimed at developing a healthy lifestyle, forming an active life and social position of children and environmental education.

For many years VSNK has been supporting the Evenk schoolchildren of the Baikit secondary school, which is in the territory of the enterprise's presence. Creative contests, master classes and career guidance lessons are held at the school on an ongoing basis. Also, with the participation of Rosneft, the school-based project «School for the beginner musher» is being implemented, which was created to revive the sledging sport on the territory of Evenkia.

For several years, young specialists from Orenburgneft have been supporting and interacting with orphanages and social rehabilitation centres in Buzuluk, Buguruslan, Sorochinsk. Every year, the company's employees conduct «Safety Lessons» for children in educational institutions located in oil production areas. Repairs were carried out in 27 schools and 7 kindergartens in 12 municipalities with the financial support of Orenburgneft.

The Syzran Refinery also traditionally accords assistance to the younger generation. On June 1, gifts from the enterprise were handed over to the Zhemchuzhina rehabilitation centre for children and adolescents with disabilities, the Orphanage, and the patients of the pediatric department of the city hospital. Over the past four years, about 30 projects which have improved the quality of the educational process have been implemented in schools and kindergartens in the city with the support of the Syzran Oil Refinery. Last year, the Syzran oil workers made a present for a kindergarten, among whose pupils there are children with severe speech development and disorders of the musculoskeletal system – a unique sensory room.

Uvatneftegaz has been cooperating with the Tyumen branch of the Russian Children's Fund for many years. The charity program finances various federal and regional organisations, such as the Bank for the Orphans Needs, Help for Children with Disabilities and Hurry to Do Good. The company purchases furniture and clothing for orphans and children in difficult life situations and assists in the treatment of disabled children. In addition, Uvatneftegaz financed the opening of a computer class in the House of Social Rehabilitation of Families and Children of the Centre «Family». The institution provides social support to orphans and children left without parental care. The company takes part in the «Key to Life» social partnership project, financing the treatment and rehabilitation of children suffering from serious illnesses, and purchases expensive medicines and medical equipment.

Rosneft is creating and developing a system of pre-university training and career guidance for schoolchildren. Rosneft specialised classes are being created in the regions where the Company operates. In their activities, they consider the specifics of the development of the territorial economy and the needs of the local labour market. At present, there are 122 Rosneft Classes in 57 cities and towns of the Russian Federation (in 27 regions), attended by more than 2,800 schoolchildren.

Rosneft makes a significant contribution to the construction and reconstruction of sports facilities, promotes the development of children's and youth sports, assists medical, educational, musical, and artistic institutions, and provides support to large families, orphanages, and social rehabilitation centres.
