Today, on the eve of the beginning of the school year, in three cities of the Karaganda region – Zhezkazgan, Satpayev and Balkhash - a ceremony of gratuitous transfer of 922 laptops from the Kazakhmys Group of companies to city educational institutions was held.
The total amount of the charity event was about 190 million tenge.

This charity event is aimed at promoting the continuity of education in the coming academic year, reducing digital inequality and ensuring full access to quality education for children.
