Social cafe Kunde provides training, rehabilitation and employment for adults with developmental and learning disabilities.
There are around 150,000-200,000 people with mental disabilities in
Kazakhstan living on a lonely island of poverty. 90% of our
teammates did not have any jobs before Kunde, however the
problem is much larger than that. Soviet legacy of Psychiatric
mistreatment, social isolation, discrimination, circle of poverty the
families are drawn into and stigmatization. In Astana city alone, the
capital of Kazakhstan, only 3% of people with disabilities have jobs
and for people with mental disabilities this number is much lower.
