In January 2008 by the initiative of charity foundations, "AYALA" and "DARA" was created an informal chain of Association of Charity Foundations (ACF) and the first members became foundations working in the field of "children, youth, family".
d uring its existence the Association has implemented several joint projects, including:
Amending the Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan "On marriage and family" in part of adoption;
implemented the project "I want to live" developing children's heart surgery in the Republic of Kazakhstan, in our country started regularly operating children weighing less than 10 kg with congenital heart disease;
since 2008 became a tradition celebrating holiday for orphans in Almaty "Day of Smiles", which is held by charity foundation "AYALA" and "DARA".
The joint activities of the foundations within two years led to the realization of the need and relevance of unions of legal entities operating in the charity sector and it led to a legally registered “Association of Charity Foundations (ACF). The Association was registered in early 2011 http://abo.kz/index.php.
