Bai Bala Project (Eng. "Rich Kid")
Develop and launch a teenager's own business project through the creation of a safe environment. Teenagers get experience of developing their emotional intelligence (EI), conscious thinking and learn the basics of financial literacy.
Brief concept of "BaiBala"
Factors of success in adulthood and a professional career today include such skills like emotion management, effective communication, anger management, stressfulness and the ability to make decisions in difficult situations . Kazakhstan is overcoming the processes of social, cultural and political transformation that affect the process of the formation of modern man and his social adaptation to changing conditions . In 1995, the psychologist Daniel Goleman identified the emotional intelligence as one of the key factors contributing to the successful realization of inner potential, achieving goals and interacting with others. Studies also indicate that EI develops in its natural form up to 17 years.
That's why the "BaiBala" project was created for children from 8 to 17 years old, because at this age, adolescents can effectively and quickly gain life skills, as well as develop critical thinking and the ability to make decisions.
This project is similar to our other project for teenagers - "YAKKI" But the main difference of "BayBal" is that 50% of the time in class is devoted to the basics of financial literacy.
The task of the "BaiBala" program: to teach the younger generation not to be afraid to realize their business projects.

Thus, during the realization of his idea, the participant is able to demonstrate new knowledge and new values in action, as well as gain the opportunity to realize his potential, gain confidence in his abilities.
At the end of all 22 meetings, an open day is held, where the participants' achievements are presented. On this day everyone (parents and relatives, friends sponsors and partners of the project) are invited to celebrate the children's successes, as well as to demonstrate the new skills acquired.
