Women in Kazakhstan: insight report

WONDER's Jans Mynbayeva examines the economic and rights-based context of women's vocational training in Kazakhstan, and explores how WONDER partner KFCSED* is responding to these challenges to empower disadvantaged young women.

Since 2005 KFCSED has been reaching out to disadvantaged women in remote, low-income regions and opened Kumbel Training Centre in 2012 as a response to the few opportunities open to many young women. Kumbel enables these women to learn skills for entry into the growing hospitality sector, where there is a shortage of skilled workers.

This report provides an insight into the situation for women in Kazakhstan, a diverse country with huge resources and great potential as well as more specifically into the country’s hospitality sector. We believe that supporting Kazakhstan’s women to reach their potential and make informed choices about their futures will be a great investment in the economic, social and cultural future of the country.
