Asel Tasmagambetova, the President of ‘Saby’ Foundation About the Foundation, about our work and a little bit about me

‘Saby’ Foundation is 13 years old: a considerable period to make a name and form a solid reputation. But if the reputation is faulty, it is enough time to make this fact clear. Our Foundation has a reputation as a reliable partner, to whom sponsors and philanthropists entrust their money knowing that projects they fund, are provided for all contingencies and always well-timed. We do not rush from one action to another: our projects solve systemic problems, they are deeply thought out, therefore, as a rule, conditions and opportunities for their implementation shape well, like puzzles fall into place, and this means moving in the right direction.

The central driving force of our Foundation is a great desire to render help those, who need it, not looking at this for benefit, without propagandizing and chanting slogans and appeals. Because true human desire to help never needs for advocacy.

Why do we do this? For us this is a special job that makes us included in the world and gives the right to a sense of self-respect. Facilitating and improving the lives of disadvantaged people, increasing the level of education of young people, giving them the impetus to the development and much more we first of all get a huge charge of the fullness of life and self-creation. For each person it is important to be needed – and not only for his/her family and dear ones. To be significant for the society, this is the highest degree of realization of the individual.

There are a phrase said by great Indian philosopher and thinker Swami Vivekananda that never cease to delight us and inspire us to new deeds:

‘Do you compassionate towards others? If so, your unity increases. And if you are not compassionate towards others, then may you be the greatest intellectual of all times, you will be left nothing. You are just a kind of chilly intellect and nothing more. But if you compassionate, may you have not read a single book and do not know other languages, but you're on the right track.’
