The Ministry of Education has approved a list of 63 schools that will participate in the project this year.
The Fund for Sustainable Development of Education, the Kazakhstan Khalkyna Fund and Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools, with the support of local executive bodies and the Ministry of Education of Kazakhstan, are implementing the Development of the Potential of Hub Schools in Rural Areas project.
The project, which brought together business, the state and society, is aimed at reducing the gap in the quality of education between the city and the countryside. In addition, its goal is to introduce the best pedagogical practices and techniques and provide support schools with the necessary material and technical base.
At the first stage of the project, classrooms were completely renovated in 17 district schools, teachers took intensive training courses at the Center for Pedagogical Excellence of Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools, and the level of education was monitored.
In 2023, the Kazakhstan Khalkyna Fund has allocated KZT15.750 billion for the second stage of the project, which will be used to equip more than 2,000 classrooms in 63 participating schools. The operating expenses of the Fund for Sustainable Development of Education are covered by AITAS holding and its founder Serik Tolukpayev.
Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools conduct an educational program free of charge, and the Kazakhstan Khalkyna Fund covers the costs of equipping schools.
