On June 1st, a very good and kind holiday, the International Children's Day, was celebrated all over the country.
The UzLITI Engineering specialists together with PR Department of Enter Engineering Group held a charity event for pupils of Specialized school #52 for children with special educational needs of Yashnabad district of the capital.
Seventy pupils of grade 5 to 9, as well as 10 teachers who accompanied the children visited the Equestrian Center - Universal Jumping Club, where a real holiday was organized for them - the kids had a tour around the area, saw the stable, gorgeous horses and various equestrian sports.
The kids saw the performance Masters Riders, who demonstrated vaulting and show jumping, which was awarded with great applause of the guests. Then, the kids guided by Angelika Rozyeva, Press Officer of the Equestrian Federation of Uzbekistan, took a walk around the stable, met with the beautiful animals and fed them with tasty carrots. They also could see how horses are cared and trained, what they are fed with and how they become sport horses.
Galina Pan, a volunteer and specialist of UzLITI Engineering, noted that this event surely will leave unforgettable impressions in children's lives. Since interactions with animals help to develop the best human qualities, and make us kind and empathic.
For many boys and girls, it was the first time they met with real horses, and they were just overсome with emotion, and even had a chance to feel themselves like real rides riding a stately horse under the control of instructors.
At the end of the event, the children had a delicious lunch, sweets and souvenirs from the company. Throughout the trip, more than 15 volunteers from UzLITI Engineering helped the children, answering their questions and keeping them in a festive mood.
“I would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the organizers for this great holiday, said Albina Shetinina, teacher of Russian language and reading. The children were really delighted and happy, and gained a lot of new impressions. And now they are looking forward to meeting their four-legged friends again.”
