The Children of Nizhny Novgorod (Russia)
In Russia, the Saint-Gobain Foundation decided to support the renovation of a theatre school for hearing-impaired children in Nizhny Novgorod, with the support of the project sponsor Dmitry Savelov. The work involved transforming part of the premises into woodworking and sewing workshops to enable the children aged between seven and 18 to learn a trade. The Isover, Weber-Vetronit, Gyproc brands also donated products.
The Foundation provided €52,000 funding for this project.
