Corporate Social Responsibility has always been an important part of Dow Izolan’s activity. The company contributes to the social and cultural life of the Vladimir region on a regular basis, and recently has organized an educational event for the children from the Lukhtonovskiy orphanage.
In November the boarding school celebrates its 37 years anniversary. On November 6, 2014 the company invited its secondary school students to the plant to learn more about one of the leading polyurethane systems production sites in Russia.
Mikhail Tsarfin, general manager of Dow Izolan, welcomed the guests and spoke on modern chemistry and its importance for our everyday life. The children watched the video about the plant and visited its high-technology laboratory, where the employees demonstrated a few bright experiments with polyurethane foams and other substances. The students got interested in the company’s technologies and actively participated in the experimental part of the excursion.
Later on, the students, accompanied by Dow Izolan representatives, visited the museum of folk art and took part in a handmade workshop. The event brought lots of memorable and positive moments to the children.
«It is very important to pay a great attention to those children who live in orphanages providing necessary help and care. I’m glad that our employees support such initiatives and take an active part in the events like this one,» said Mikhail Tsarfin. «I really wish the students of the Lukhtonovskiy orphanage success and happiness in future!»
In September, 2014 Dow Izolan took the Lukhtonovskiy orphanage under its patronage on a permanent basis. The company plans to support the boarding school in the following areas: purchasing of sports and canteen equipment, New Year gifts for the children and support renovating works at school.
Moreover, since 2011 Dow Izolan has provided its financial support to the sportsmen, graduates from the boarding school, within the Special Olympiad program. They regularly participate in various competitions together with local sport teams taking the winning places.
