Solnyshko (“Sunshine”) Kindergarten, a municipal, State-owned childcare facility run by the Mazanovsky district local authority in the Amur region

Address: 14 Kirova Street, Mazanovo, Mazanovsky district, 676540 Amur region

Head: Ms. Irina Alexandrovna Filatova

Days of heavy rain left the village submerged in water and the kindergarten was badly damaged. The basement was flooded and the sewage draining system and clean water supply both failed. A new local water supply and the installation of a pumping station are desperately needed, plus the replacement of 54 square metres of flooring, furniture and equipment, which were affected by the water or damp. It is estimated that this work will cost 300 thousand roubles. 75% of pre-school children living in Mazanovo and the surrounding villages and countryside attend Solnyshko Kindergarten however it cannot function under these conditions.


Novoye Kindergarten and Primary School, a municipal, State-owned childcare facility and school

Address: 1 Shkolnaya Street, Novoye, Leninskiy District, 679370 EAO (Jewish Autonomous Region)

Head: Ms Oxana Vlasimirovna Krasnoyarskaya

The village, Novoye, really suffered during the floods. The kindergarten and school, a single-story building, was flooded with the water rising as high as the windows. The central heating system and the water supply were damaged beyond repair. The floor, walls and the foundations of the building have been seriously damaged.  Furniture and equipment are also beyond repair. Novoye Kindergarten and Primary School is the only such facility in the village, providing education and childcare for babies, toddlers and young children. However, the school simply cannot function at present and  the building itself is unstable. The older children are being bussed to neighbouring villages, Kalinino and Leniskoye. The younger children have either been sent to holiday camps or are in the evacuation camp with their parents. At the time of going to print, a government commission was still calculating the full cost of the damage, but it’s likely that the building will need demolishing.  The cost of constructing a new facility is in  the order of 1.5-2 million roubles.


The Petropavlovsk Foundation

The Petropavlovsk Foundation

The Petropavlovsk Foundation for Social Investment was established in 2010 by the Petropavlovsk Group.  The Foundation aims to support and stimulate the social, humanitarian and cultural development of the Russian Far East.

The Petropavlovsk Group has been operating in the Russian Far East for nearly two decades. Over this time the Group has developed several greenfield projects into mines and is now one of the largest companies operating in the region. The activities of the Group have promoted, and continue to stimulate, the industrial, economic and social development of the Russian Far East. At the same time, the Petropavlovsk Group has pursued an active social outreach programme, helping to enhance the quality of life of local people in the Russian Far East.

As the Group’s social outreach programme and charitable commitments expanded, it became evident that a new structure was required to combine and streamline the Group’s existing charitable work, which would ultimately enable it to provide more help to those in greatest of need. Consequently, The Petropavlovsk Foundation for Social Investment was born. 

The Petropavlovsk Foundation aims to promote and develop the socio-economic, cultural and scientific potential of the Amur region and the surrounding areas, improving the quality of life for those who live and work there.
