All grown-ups were children first,
only few of them remember it.

On the eve of the International Children's Day, our employees visited Panfilov boarding school for orphans and children with no parents. Famous athletes, bloggers and company partners also took part in the celebration organized for the students of the social institution.
"Childhood is the most critical stage in everyone's life. Children's Day is not just a holiday. It is a reminder to ourselves - adults - that we are responsible for those who needs our care, support, help and protection", said Nurgul Satarova, Chairman of Bakai Bank's Management Board.
On the occasion of the Children's Day, the Bank presented the boarding school with a playground and a workout area. Weightlifter Izzat Artykov participated in the ceremony and on behalf of the National Olympic Committee presented the children with sports equipment. Blogger Baigazy Temirbekov brought the children a TV set, and Meerim Tolepbergen presented them with books. Bakai Bank's partner "Pingvi" trademark sponsored the event by handing out ice cream for all the children of the orphanage.
"Every year we hold events to mark June 1. And on this anniversary year for Bakai Bank, which is held under the motto "25 years - 25 good deeds", we decided not just to provide one-time assistance to the boarding school, but also to lay the foundation for the comprehensive development of children and their healthy future. And we are grateful to our friends and partners for supporting our initiatives", noted Nurgul Satarova, Chairman of the Management Board of Bakai Bank.
On its part, the administration of the social institution thanked the Bank's representatives for their concern for the children and the assistance provided to the school. Previously the Panfilov boarding school had no sports ground of its own. The gift was a great motivation for its students.
In closing of the event, Nurgul Satarova, Chairman of the Management Board of Bakai Bank, addressed the young students: "It's nice to see your faces shining with smiles. I wish that all your dreams come true. Do not be afraid to set the highest goals and go for them. And may each of you have a bright future ahead of you!"
