Charitable Foundation “Caritas Kazakhstan” has chosen several directions, on the most pressing issues of Kazakhstani society. One of these directions is the Project for Supporting the Parents of Children with Down Syndrome. For several years, with the help and professional support of specialists from Italy (in particular, Professor Luigi Sangalli from the State University of Milan), we hold consultations and examinations of children with Down Syndrome, we draw up individual rehabilitation programs for each child, and carry out online consultations. In order to expand the project we established a Day Care Center for Children with Down Syndrome, with the support of the Almaty City Administration. Currently, work is underway to expand this direction and include teenagers and adults with the Syndrome in the project, for the development of an inclusive society in which everyone could realize themselves, get an education and have the opportunity to work.
