2020 – Year of Volunteer
There are more than 200 volunteer organizations in Kazakhstan. More than 50,000 young activists are involved as volunteers in different fields. Nearly 30,000 of the youth are officially registered in the National Volunteer Network.
For example, a young team from Eastern Kazakhstan has developed a special application for effective performance of their social work. The application is on pilot test. Local volunteers will be able to coordinate and plan their daily activities using the online messaging application.
“I think it is very important to have volunteers, since there are many families in need. Therefore, it is important to find and help these families. Every citizen should have social responsibility. We are learning and gaining education. Therefore, we have to care and pay attention to others,” said volunteer, Sholpan Bauyrzhankyzy.
“I have recently joined the team of volunteers. This work is close to my soul because I like helping people. I improve myself in terms of mental and physical development,” said volunteer, Pyotr Sukhanov.
