„Nordgain“ believes that business has to make contributions to society, most importantly – be part of growing a happy & capable young generation. Our cornerstone belief is that every child, no matter what is his family’s social status, has the right to receive a full – fledged education & have access to all necessary learning material. This is why we are glad to be a part of VIRACT’S (Vilnius International Rotaract Club) project “Pirmoji kuprinė” (en. First backpack).
The goal of the project is to provide 30 school children from poverty – stricken families with necessary school inventory (backpacks, a uniform or other clothes, sportswear, sports bag, stationery). VIRACT in cooperation with social workers, chose the first graders from various regions in Lithuania where the unemployment rate, poverty and other social problems are the most widespread.
The project „Pirmoji kuprinė“ (en. First backpack) was created this year, but VIRACT, as well as, „Nordgain“ hopes that it will grow and become continuous. We want help our children to grow in a friendly and education – encouraging environment.
