How to provide your children with cloths and stay beautiful and elegant yourself if you are a mother of multiple children? That was the question Dina Tursunkhanova from Pavlodar village, whose life has changed completely during five months asked herself. Literally half a year ago she could not imagine herself becoming an entrepreneur.
The 25-year old Aibek Zhanysov has a rather rare occupation for Kazakhstan: he is a sculptor-artist. The young man lives in the Kyzylzhar rural area, Saryagash district in Turkestan region. As any artistic person he is constantly in pursuit of new ideas and inspiration.
Once, Aibek had a chance to observe a shoe master carving the leather details, cutting the excess and creating a whole piece of art. The shoe making process engrossed the young man, that the latter decided to learn the craft which was very much alike to that of his own.
“Studying the experience of shoe masters, I came across a video on social pages, telling the story of one craftsman, who developed unique sandals for children from low-income families in Africa. I have decided to help those who need new shoes but cannot afford to buy it”, - says Aibek.
