Most Meaningful Change

Our greatest achievement has been to award grants to students who couldn’t find help from other social organizations by establishing links and networks between our foundation, universities, schools, social services and other foundations. We have succeeded in getting firms, enterprises, banks and others interested in our projects. We have created a club in which our prize winners can find mutual help. The foundation also takes part in the fight against illiteracy, which is quite important to our region.
