Learning about our projects Moscow jeweler Vadim Katz, the Head and the founder of the OLVA-K firm that specializes in manufacturing corporative badges with logo was interested and fascinated by THE FIRST TEACHER project and decided to make a gift to the Foundation.
Vadim made the badge for us depicting the logo of our Foundation, but in place of the Foundation name there is “fonddun sherikteshi” meaning “Foundation’s ally”.
During the ceremony of awarding the winner the FIRST TEACHER 2014 we presented the badges to the jury as a sign of gratitude for their selfless work in this project.
We also gave this badge to our volunteer Aida Urpoyeva in expression of gratitude for the proofreading of the Kyrgyz versions of some of the materials. We would also like to express our gratitude for the proofreading of the English version of some of our materials, by presenting the same badge to Ellie Austen, the English teacher in the school “Bilimkana” of Shabdan village. Ellie is at home in the UK, thus the badge will be presented to her later.
We also had the pleasure of handing the badge to the national poet of Kyrgyzstan Vyacheslav Ivanovich Shapovalov in an expression of gratitude for the support of our project THE FIRST TEACHER 2014. The famous poet and Kyrgyz-Russian translator of poetry, Laureate of International awards presented his books to the 3 winners of THE FIRST TEACHER 2014.
