AYALA Charity Foundation implements charitable projects in the area of healthcare and education to the benefit of children.
Children are the key beneficiaries of all the projects and programs of our Foundation, which are aimed to maintain and make better their quality of life, to promote health, to help with social adaptation and access to education.
We organize fundraising for charitable programs that help solve pressing social problems in the following areas:
AYALA Charity Foundation has been operating in Kazakhstan since 2007. Over this period, the Foundation managed to raise more than 5 billion tenge in form of sponsor support from large companies operating in Kazakhstan and in form of charitable donations from individuals. These funds were used to provide assistance to 242 children’s public health and education institutions in 67 cities and towns across the country. Thanks to such projects as “Breathe, Baby”, “Breath in Life”, “I Want to Live, Too”, tens of thousands of children’s lives were saved. Thousands of children from orphanages and boarding schools received assistance in social adaptation and learning skills useful in life and in the profession.
The mission of AYALA Foundation is to foster the tradition and culture of charity in Kazakhstan. We aim to make charity a necessary norm for the majority of Kazakhstani people.
The Foundation operates transparently, continuously and openly. A systematic approach to solving problems in the field of children’s healthcare and education is the main principle of our work.
The algorithm of our work in implementing charity projects:
100% of the funds received from the sponsors are allocated for implementation of projects. Remuneration to the Foundation employees is paid out of other financial sources.

Our Foundation activities’ goal is to reduce children and infant mortality and disability in Kazakhstan. Our mission is to foster a tradition and culture of charity in our country.
Since 2007, with the support of hundreds of sponsors and the help of tens of thousands of Kazakhstanis, we have saved the lives of more than 130 thousand children in Kazakhstan. And we did this through systemic changes in healthcare.
Step by step, using the Foundations raised, we are installing special resuscitation equipment in perinatal Centres and maternity hospitals, in children’s multidisciplinary and infectious diseases hospitals effectively all over Kazakhstan.
We have trained more than 500 neonatologists, cardiac surgeons and nurses in the latest techniques and practices in caring for newborns. And we continue to do this, only in an online format now.
More than 50 thousand Kazakhstani children receive correctional development, play and develop physically, intellectually and creatively, gain practical skills for future professions using special equipment donated to 233 educational and remedial institutions in the country.
Why do we do it?
Because we want our children to be able to receive all required medical care in Kazakhstan, rather than outside it. We want as few children as possible to receive the status of “special”, because their health and intelligence are recovered by Kazakhstani professional doctors. We want teachers in specil boarding schools and psychological and learning disability rooms to work with children using the most modern equipment and the most advanced remedial techniques.
“Ayalau” translated from the Kazakh language means “to take care”, “to cherish”. Giving care to children in need of help, fighting what seems invincible and frightening — death and illness, showing perseverance, creative approach, creativity and character, our Foundation gives this world the brightest power — the Power of Care.
Power can destroy, yet it can also create and do good. After all, as is commonly known, with great power comes great responsibility. For me personally, the meaning of this phrase is as follows: if there is an opportunity to do more than others can do, I direct my power to a good deed.
If you are able to help the Good, just do it. Even small good deeds can cause big changes in the world and in our country. Join our POWER OF CARE!
Appreciation to everybody who supports the Power of Care of AYALA Foundation, Aidan Suleimenova
I have never been indifferent to the work of the Foundation; I was actively involved in attracting new friends, sponsors and partners. I participated as a volunteer in festivities for children. This active work allowed me to eventually take the position of Vice President for Legal Issues. In my life, I am an active sportswoman and a loving mother.
My task at the Foundation is to do everything to ensure that financial flows are crystal clear from sponsors to beneficiaries. I take an active part in various Foundation’s programs and receive a powerful positive charge from this.
I joined the Foundation’s team in 2019 when I realized that I wanted to do more every day than just come to work and perform my job duties perfectly. For the last 15 years I have worked in the corporate sector of IT and telecoms, the drivers of the modern world development. And now I’m glad to use my extensive knowledge and experience in management, project management, communications, marketing and SMM, so that there are as many saved children as possible in Kazakhstan every day. Charitable activities inspire me by the endless opportunities for creativity, the combination of difficult challenges and, of course, the main result for which we all work at the Foundation - the reduction of child mortality and disability in Kazakhstan.
I graduated from the St. Petersburg Humanitarian University of Trade Unions with a degree in manager of socio-cultural activities. Have been working with the Foundation from 2009. I communicate with sponsors and beneficiaries, look for interesting projects and implement them. I like that AYALA Foundation projects improve the healthcare and education sectors and cover hundreds of people. I am fond of sports, reading, and love to travel.
I came to the AYALA Foundation in 2010 as a volunteer, when I entered the Kazakh National University of International Relations and Foreign Languages. Took part in dozens of Foundation’s projects. That is why after graduating from the university, I decided to stay and work here, because I always dreamed of bringing benefit to people and the country. Currently, I am handling international and educational projects. Fluency in several foreign languages (English and Greek) helps a lot. Working in charity gave me the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of true human values. I also realized that helping children and seeing their smiles is a great joy for me. Therefore, I do want as many people as possible to devote themselves to serving children. I believe that the wise goodness and noble qualities of our people will make charitable activities an important part of our lives.
I have been working with the Foundation from 2012. During this time, I learned to find a common language with teachers and children of our sponsored orphanages, boarding schools and other children's institutions. My mother was a teacher, so I know the challenges that the educational institutions face quite well. Implemented dozens of projects. I am a techy by education, so my approach to solving problems is more engineering than humanitarian. Creativity, communication with new people, launching new projects, introducing innovations in special education, attracting volunteers - I get all this from charity. And I’m glad that the Foundation saves children’s lives and makes people happy. I hope that more people will do good deeds in the future.
I am a diplomat-cum-translator by profession, and by the will of fate I began working at the Foundation almost from 2007 whey it was founded. I led medical, educational and training projects on skills improvement of doctors. The field of charity is very close to me. I try to be open to the world, people and social problems as much as possible. I love my job for its diversity, because there is a lot of creativity in it. It's pleasing to know that our work brings real benefits and reduces infant and child mortality I have two little sons, with whose birth I became more sensitive and worry about everything related to children even more deeply.
I am very sociable and take part in the Foundation’s events as a volunteer with great pleasure. Working at the Foundation, I became a strong supporter of effective charity and learned a lot about the state of affairs in children's healthcare and education.
Before entering for the specialty of the international law at Kazakh State University, I studied at the Republican school Daryn, where I participated in events to help children from large and low-income families. Working as a lawyer, I got acquainted with the activities of the AYALA Foundation and became its volunteer. I consider it my professional duty to provide the Foundation’s programs and projects with all essential legal assistance.
I share the values of the AYALA Foundation and gladly help in solving various IT problems. I enjoy being a part of the Foundation's good deeds.
