Quality education is an important part of everyone's life. The level of education of the population depends on the efficiency of the economy, its development and competitiveness. That is why Naftogaz supports educational projects to ensure sustainable development for future generations, to promote individual employment opportunities and to contribute to the potential growth of the well-being of our fellow citizens.
In January 2021, Naftogaz Group launched a national grant competition: “Energy of Development”. The competition is aimed at supporting social initiatives of communities to achieve sustainable development of the Company’s regions. Following the results of the competition, 50 winning projects will receive UAH 100,000 each for its implementation. A key element of the competition was the mandatory pre-training process for all participants. It is dedicated to the main elements of development and implementation of social projects, including risk management, budgeting and planning, operations management, fund-raising and peculiarities of additional fund-raising for projects and so on.

In October 2021, in cooperation with the Junior Academy of Sciences, we joined the creation of an installation in the Museum of Science at the National Complex “Expocenter of Ukraine”. We are talking about the exhibition stand “Journey of Gas”. With its help, young visitors to the institution can develop their own gas field and find out what a difficult “voyage” gas takes before it gets into people’s homes.
