– Due to the pandemic, we could not gather the winners of the programs for more than 2 years. Thus, we decided to make this meeting special and combined in it the official moment – the speeches of the founder and employees of the foundation – with a workshop and discussion of working issues. The participants were also provided with a stage: they shared their experience and details of their projects and plans. And during coffee and lunch breaks, the guys communicated with each other and engaged in networking, – explained the executive director of the foundation Aiganym Malisheva.

17-year-old Anuarbek Ashikbayev, the winner of the “Orleu” program, a first-year student of the Asfendiyarov KazNMU told:
– The program in which I won pays me a year of study, a monthly scholarship and accommodation. I have plans on how to finance the rest of my studies, but I hope that I also will be able to participate in the “Orleu” competition next year. I did not score a passing grade at the Unified National Testing, but I did not despair, I tried to find money to pay for education and then found out about the Yessenov Foundation. I advise all the guys to look for opportunities and believe in themselves.
Tamerlan Ibrayemov, an electric power engineer, a graduate of Al-Farabi Kazakh National University, who is 22, won the program of research internships.
– I am from the small town of Khromtau, I won in 2020, I did my research in Spain in the laboratory at the Catalan Polytechnic University. My work there will help in the development of electric aircraft. I would advise future contestants to listen to their inner voice, follow their essence, do not forget about their dreams and make them come true, even if it takes a long time,” – Tamerlan Ibrayemov shared.
The training event in the form of a business game lasted all day. It was conducted by a long-time partner, coach and psychologist of the Yessenov Foundation Elena Amreyeva, who is directly involved in the process of the final selection of the winners of all the foundation’s competitions.
– We started the day with a game that introduced all the guys to each other, and at the end of the day, they were already in teams developing and presenting the concept of an educational resource – the direction in which the foundation may start moving next year, – explained Elena Amreyeva.
