We seek to provide equal educational opportunities to uplift every child
How Connect-Ed started
The idea to start the project was inspired by education activists Gulnaz Kordanova and Daniyar Kusainov during quarantine, on April 8, 2020. They stayed at home 24/7 due to lockdown of COVID-19 and realized how important it is to have access to technology in order to keep working and be connected to the community. In fact, even in 2020, having a personal computer at home and stable access to the Internet and technology is still a privilege. Our initiative was immediately supported by the Soros Foundation-Kazakhstan, which allocated funds from a special reserve to help the most vulnerable groups of the population: among them are children left without access to computers and technologies. Our team consists of active enthusiasts who care about Educational equality: Gulnaz, Daniyar, Tomas, Nessie, Alikhan, Daniel, Nurtas, and Gaukhar.
