As part of the implementation of the Program to increase the income of the population, the first inclusive fitness center was opened in the village of Kabanbay batyr, Akmola region.
The fitness center was created on the initiative of a resident of the village Dinara Naumova, president of the Association of an Inclusive Society, winner of the Tauelsizdik Urpaktary grant in 2021.
The event was attended by Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Yeraly Tugzhanov, representatives of the Board of Trustees of the KF Kamkorlyk kory, heads of central and local government bodies, representatives of business structures and the public.
In his congratulatory speech, Yeraly Tugzhanov noted the importance of social entrepreneurship.
“This project was implemented thanks to the relationship between the state and society and entrepreneurs with high social responsibility. Improving the quality of life of people with disabilities is under constant control of the Government of the country. Last year, the Head of State signed a law aimed at improving the social situation of people with disabilities, and 6 conceptual norms were adopted. In general, comprehensive measures are being taken to ensure that people with disabilities become an active part of society,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.
It is noted that the center can be visited by everyone, and for people with disabilities there are free classes with professional exercise therapy instructors in a specially equipped room. In total, there are 2 halls - a gym equipped with professional sports equipment and inventory, as well as a hall for group classes.
When compiling health programs, the wishes of the local community were taken into account. In addition, the fitness center will have karate, yoga sections and a leisure club for the elderly.
