The Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation gives a school bus to the children of Gorno-Altaysk

22 April 2011

The Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation provided the means to purchase a school bus for pupils in the Zaimka district of Gorno-Altaysk.

The new bus will help over 100 pupils from 4 local schools (Local schools № 3 and № 4, Residential Foster School № 1, and the School for Children with Special Needs) reach their lessons safely, comfortably and on time. Without this vehicle, this simple task was nearly impossible in the newly constructed, remote and poorly connected Zaimka district. A significant part of the population of this area are low-income families who do not own personal transport.

The new school bus will take all the neighbourhood children to their respective schools in the morning, and pick them up after lessons.
