ABOUT US

The Kazakh Aul is dedicated to providing cultural enrichment and community connections to families with children from Kazakhstan and anyone with a connection to Central Asian culture.

Founded in 2004 by Susan Saxon and Zhanat Baidaralin, the organization has worked with hundreds of families in the U.S. and Canada.   Over the years, many people have helped contribute to the growth, programming and connections of our organization.  We are grateful to all those who help keep us strong and vibrant.
