New climbing wall at earth’s end sponsored by Gazprom Dobycha Nadym

At the beginning of the new school year, a climbing wall was opened at the Seyakhinskaya Boarding School, the northernmost school in the Yamal Peninsula. The training module named Skalodrom was acquired through the grant funding of Gazprom Dobycha Nadym.

The rock-climbing structure will allow the students of the boarding school to improve their health, coordination, and resilience. The gift from Nadym gas workers will not only enrich the lives of northern indigenous children, but also help schoolchildren with vestibular disorders. About 70 persons have already signed up for the rock-climbing club.

The competition for special grants has already become a good tradition at Gazprom Dobycha Nadym. Since 2013, about 30 projects have been awarded grants in such areas as children's sports and creativity, education and environment, culture and promotion of patriotism.

“Thanks to the grant funds, our animation studio has been provided with new equipment: an interactive hardware and software package, an animation stand, and a video studio set,” said Svetlana Mertyukova, principal of the boarding school in the Nyda village, Nadymsky District. “We are now proud owners of a whole array of animated films in the Nenets and Russian languages. They are engaging and easy to understand. The children are thrilled!”
