“In childhood, everyone dreams of becoming someone: a fireman, astronaut, scientist, or businessman. In order to achieve that one needs to study. Unfortunately, not all people in Kazakhstan have the opportunity to get the higher education they want, partially for a financial reason. Therefore, we would like to share our experience and knowledge, help Kazakhstanis to define life goals and priorities as early as in childhood. The free camp for children “Freedom Finance Camp” is our first step towards helping children become what they dream of”, said Azamat Yerdessov, the Board Chairman of JSC LIC Freedom Finance Life.
