Supporting the community in Kazakstan
Gulzhanat Muratbai is something of a local celebrity in Kazakstan, known as ‘the young woman with a big heart.’
In 2006 Gulzhanat set up an organisation, Urpak Next, to help thousands of disabled and disadvantaged children around the Mangistau Province.
At 24, Gulzhanat is one of the youngest directors of an NGO in Kazakhstan. The story began five years ago when, fresh out of college, Gulzhanat was invited to work as a voluntary interpreter for the American Peace Corps at the Arman Regional Youth Centre.
Seeing the joy that the work brought to the children, Gulzhanat was inspired to keep working to brighten children’s lives.
Hertel are always happy to lend support to the local communities we are part of, and were able to help by sponsoring an Urpak-Next event in Aktau. Fifteen children from small villages around the area enjoyed a trip to a seaside restaurant where they played games, ate and went ice-skating.
