For the ‘Saby’ Charitable Foundation 2014 became the year of intermediate summation, current projects restructuring and new borders finding.
The projects were restructured and improved owing to the changes of general atmosphere in the country and to the improvements in social and economic spheres. Our country is on the turn and we do our best to be in step with the times to be flexible and mobile within our activity. For example in 2002 the ‘Saby’ Charitable Foundation resolved urgent problems of orphanages, boarding schools and medical institutions: bought clothes, toiletries, medicines, even food - everything to provide more or less adequate conditions for children’s life and curing. ‘Saby’ foundation provided repairs in orphanages, equipped surgery and recovery blocks in hospitals and provided training for the doctors.
Nowadays the state makes large investments to develop medicine, education and social sector. Medical institutions are equipped with up-to-date equipment; the irregularities in necessary medicines supply are the rare occurrence. The foster children live in adequate conditions, they are well-dressed and well-fed.
Such previously neglected things like spirituality, education and culture of upbringing step forward. Thus the activities of the charity organizations shall be directed to other frame. That’s why this year the ‘Saby’ Charitable Foundation focused on the ‘Alem’ Young Talents Support Program as well as on Educational Project which provide an opportunity for gifted children from Kazakhstan, for orphan children and children relating to vulnerable groups of society to obtain educational grants under the definite terms to study in secondary specialized colleges and in universities.
‘Orkendeu’ Building Project is still the most significant one in the activity of our Foundation but it overgrew the level of repairs of orphanages and hospitals, and now in scope of this project we resolve fundamental issues. For orphan children we build absolutely new houses to live in. These houses are comfortable, cozy, equipped with all things necessary for harmonious and healthy development. In Kyzyl-Orda city we have built a new house for 60 persons, in Astana city we are building a family type village for children for 140 persons and in Aktobe city we conduct negotiations with local authorities on building the dormitories for orphan children and specific boarding schools leavers.
Someday these children will leave children’s social institutions and they face to serious problem of accommodation. It’s really difficult for them to resolve this problem themselves. Our pilot Project ‘Youth’ intended to help goal-oriented boys and girls who are ready to compete for the right to buy own flat on favorable conditions. Our Foundation is still implementing this Project.
Also ‘Saby’ goes on working on Sports Project. As sport trainings contribute not only in muscles strength for teenagers, but also teach discipline and interest for self-improvement and outdoor playing for little children always contributes to good mood that is the guarantee of strong physical and mental health as well as the trigger for infant development. The Foundation goes on constructing sport sites and tot-lot areas in social institutions of the country.
The Project ‘Good Living Standards for Handicapped People’ in its initially developed form approached to its logical end because the goals stated by the ‘Saby’ Foundation are achieved. We handed this Project under the responsibility of the state for its further implementation and development on republican level. The Ministry of Social Safety developed and brought into effect the Rules on rendering the services of handicapped people transfer by automobile transport.
Below we present the annual report on the activity of the ‘Saby’ Charitable Foundation for 2014 year which describes every Project. In the New Year Eve we traditionally publish this document on the web-site www.saby.kz and any person can become acquainted with the activities of our organization.
