SOS Children's villages appeared in our country 25 years ago. They bring up children left without parental care, but, unlike orphanages, SOS-model as close as possible to the family. Here children have a caring mother, brothers and sisters grow up in the same house and live as in an ordinary family.

In June, the first House of youth was opened in Almaty — two apartments (separately for boys and girls); rent, improvement, and maintenance were sponsored by Astana motors. In 2019, the company will allocate about 38 500 000 tenge for the maintenance of apartments and salaries of teachers-mentors who will live with children around the clock. Many employees of the company also made their personal contribution. In addition, the children from the House of youth will have the opportunity to pass a paid internship in the companies of Astana Group.
Also Nurlan Smagulov gifted the Fund with two Hyundai Accent cars. They will be used for the needs of children from SOS children's villages in Almaty and Nur-Sultan.
Nurlan Smagulov: «It is very important to me that the employees of our company did not stand aside and made efforts to open the House of youth.
