"The Ulytau Educational Foundation" was founded in Kazakhstan in 2021 and aimed to tackle the most difficult aspects in the development of the educational system of Kazakhstan.

As part of its projects, the foundation shapes a new ethics of education, taking into account the rapidly changing global reality and the labor market. Thanks to integrated approach and progressive thinking we are build a model that can adapt graduates to the real world, its opportunities and risks.

We adhere to principles of inclusivity and equal access to education for all groups. The Foundation implements scholarship programs for gifted students, conducts training sessions and provides an opportunity to study the best international programs.

We firmly believe in uniqueness and talent of each child that must underlie future major. Therefore, each of our projects is aimed at integrating the best international educational programs in the context of individual development and career prospects.

Dear friends,

I believe in power of education!!

All of my professional and personal experience only strengthens this belief.

Education isn’t just a tool for social mobility and the core for successful career and great achievements in life. Education is also the most effective driver of social evolution and progress

Considering that study becomes life-long and continuous, its quality gradually reflects in all spheres of life. A forward looking and innovative, educational system must become a basis for the long-term development of whole regions. .

My vast experience and network as well as relying on the unique cultural traits of Kazakhstan, such as its rich history of education and its ethnic diversity, will allow the foundation to implement projects that will lead to long-term change that is beyond surface level: from reforms to transformations.
