Zippy' Friends in Russia
• Schools and kindergartens this year 49
• Children this year 1,452
• Total children since launch 5,541
Zippy’s Friends is being run in north-western Russia by a small but effective agency, NGO Sodeistvie, which manages a variety of programmes promoting the health of children and young people in the area. The first teacher training course was held in November 2011 in Karelia. The programme has since expanded to schools in Saint Petersburg, Murmansk and surrounding regions.
The introduction of Zippy’s Friends in Russia has been funded by the Norwegian Barents Secretariat, which promotes Norwegian-Russian relations in the north.
