The joint federal project of the VSK Insurance House and Russian goalkeeper, Igor Akinfeev, “Penalty” won the “Best Social Projects of Russia” award in the “Support for Gifted Children and Youth” nomination, 63.ru reports. The project’s main task is to attract the attention of the audience to young talents who have no opportunity for development.
As part of the project, everyone who purchased a VSK policy under voluntary insurance programmes was able to receive insurance coverage on special conditions, and part of the proceeds from the sale of policies goes to Igor Akinfeev’s charitable foundation “The Country of Football”. There were also a number of events organized for the inmates of the family education support centres. For example, children visited the cyber zone of the VSK Insurance House, took part in interactive gaming competitions, and received gifts.
