The initiative El Umiti is aimed at supporting and developing new programs for talented young people. We believe that every child and every young man has his own talent, it only needs to be revealed. Therefore, first of all, the Daryn centers will be strengthened in each region. Each child can reveal his potential, where he can study, where he can work, to which he is more suitable. Then there will be programs: foreign trips to Silicon Valley, Singapore, study tours to Cambridge and many others that we are working on together with the Government,” Asset Issekeshev emphasized.
