An annual charity event “CPC to First-Grade Pupils” was held in Atyrau Oblast, Republic of Kazakhstan. Boys and girls who start their education this year in rural schools received complete sets of necessary school accessories in beautiful and practical schoolbags as a gift from Caspian Pipeline Consortium. This year, the Consortium’s traditional event has particular significance and relevance under conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Many families throughout the country have experienced the impact of the pandemic-related restrictions, - Zholaman Izgaliuly, Headmaster of Aktogay secondary school noted at the gift handing ceremony. - On behalf of the school Administration and parents I express the gratitude to the Company which conducts this type of charity events here on an annual basis”.
The sets received by the first-grade pupils of Atyrau Oblast schools include everything needed to start a travel adventure to the Country of knowledge: exercise books, pens, color pencils, paints, sketchbooks and many other things. Not only children but also their parents are delighted with the variety of high-quality educational accessories. The gifts for a new school year will become an incentive to the first-grade pupils to study hard and behave perfectly.
CPC-K most important tasks include the Company's development as a good citizen. Since 2001, the Company has been providing a charity aid to construction of social facilities in Atyrau Oblast and constantly supports needy and single-parent families, children with disabilities and children without parents.

The CPC pipeline system is one of the largest investment projects with foreign capital in the energy sector in the CIS. The length of Tengiz-Novorossiysk pipeline is 1,511 km; more than two thirds of all export crude oil from Kazakhstan and crude oil from the Russian fields, including those in the Caspian Region, are transported by this route.
