The «Samruk-Kazyna Trust» Social Development Foundation continues to implement the «ӘREKET» project in 2021.

In 2019, the geography of the Project was expanded from 9 regions to the whole of Kazakhstan.
The Competition was attended by 290 non-profit organizations (NPO). Following the results of a three-stage selection, 51 NPOs were selected, which underwent a three-day training in social entrepreneurship and presented their projects to the competition committee.
