DECENT LIFE FOR DISABLED PEOPLE

Project Mission:
To raise the level of self-realization of people with limited capacities, to create decent life conditions for them, to organize unobstructed access to objects of social infrastructure, to create conditions for rehabilitation and integration of disabled people into society.

Main Project Objectives:
1. To provide free access for all needed people to objects of social infrastructure and to significantly improve their life quality by organizing Invataxi special car parks for rendering free transport services to people having special moving difficulties, first of all to wheelchair persons. Equipped with special lifting appliances, such cars make possible for a wheelchair person to get into the passenger compartment without much effort and the need to change seats;
2. To provide people with difficulties in moving with the possibility to activate and integrate into society. The ability to move will allow people with limited capacities to actively participate in social life including the possibility to work. Special attention should be given to children, who can attend schools, developing centers and cultural events;
3. To form adequate mindset of citizens of Kazakhstan regarding problems of people with limited capacities.

Problem Definition
Do we see in our day-to-day life people with limited capacities and people in wheelchairs in the streets? Very rarely. But this fact does not mean that the number of such people is little. About 40,000 people with limited capacities live in Almaty including over 2,000 children. If a healthy person managing personal problems can use a car, taxi or public transport, for a disabled person, having problems with musculoskeletal system, this type of moving is impossible. It is connected both with a high cost of a trip and the difficulty in the loading of a wheelchair. In connection with such enforced confinement within the walls of their own houses, disabled people cannot go out to places common for ordinary people such as a shop, hospital, bank let alone a theatre, cinema and museum. Also they are deprived of the possibility to work and study, to take part in cultural events that means they are completely isolated from society, and which destroys not only their moral welfare, but violates guaranteed constitutional rights.

Project Realization Plan:
Taking into account the whole difficulty of the problem, Saby Charitable Foundation carried out its own monitoring and came to the conclusion of the necessity to arrange special car parks for the transportation of wheelchair people in cities of Kazakhstan. Cars equipped with special lifting appliances will allow a wheelchair person to get into the passenger compartment without much effort. The ability to move will allow people with limited capacities to take part in society life which is especially important for children who can attend schools, developing centers and cultural events.

Project Actions:
1. To purchase specially equipped cars for transportation of people with limited capacities and donate them to disabled people societies in Kazakhstan cities for further exploitation (Executor Saby);
2. To purchase special ladder lifting appliances for bringing wheelchairs up and down the stairs in buildings and constructions and to equip Invataxi cars with them (Executor Saby);
3. To organize Invataxi car parks and dispatch services in Kazakhstan cities employing disabled people who can work (Executor Societies of Disabled People of Cities of the Republic of Kazakhstan);
4. To form material and technical basis of dispatch services organized on the basis of Invataxi services including supplying of computer equipment and software support for the automatization of handling of orders for transportation of wheelchair people and prepare reports on expenditure of budgeting funds (Executor Saby);
5. To finance the activity of organized Invataxi services in Kazakhstan cities (Executor municipal akimats (authorities) of Kazakhstan cities).

Project History:
In order to realize scale projects, in June, 2008, in Almaty city, Saby Charitable Foundation in cooperation with Art Exhibition Direction arranged the Art Nomad Exhibition, the main task of which was to attract the attention of society to problems of disabled people as well as to introduce to foreign guests visual and applied art of Kazakhstan. The visit of this event by the Chairman of Christies Auction House Lord David Linley allowed to carry out the next stage of the project a charitable auction and exhibition at Christies Auction House in London. This event was held in October, 2008 and became significant not only for the Foundation but for our whole country because it opened to the world one of the constituent of the culture of Kazakhstan. At such high level Kazakh art was exhibited for the first time. The auction and exhibition raised almost 1,000,000 US dollars. All funds were transferred for the purchase of first 20 equipped Invataxi cars of Volkswagen mark.

Project Financing:
Project financing is carried out at the expense of voluntary contributions made by benefactors through Saby Private Charitable Foundation Non-Profit Organization.

Expected Results
Gradual realization of this Program will allow disabled and non-mobile people to overcome current limitations in life activity, to increase the index of integration of disabled people into society, to increase the level of social protection of disabled people, to reinforce material and technical basis of social institutions for creating conditions for the realization of potential and possibilities of disabled people, to improve qualification of social services institutions staff, to create premises for the formation of adequate mindset of Kazakhstan citizens regarding problems of disabled people.
