Speaking about the project "100 new books", the speaker noted that along with improving the quality of education in Kazakhstan’s universities, this project provides an opportunity to enrich the Kazakh language with new, modern content: "content that is interesting to young people and will help them to form and establish themselves as professionals. It is necessary to develop the Kazakh language. This requires good content in the Kazakh language. A Social Foundation called the National Translation Office has been set up to implement the project.

The Foundation is a non-profit and non-governmental organization. Its goal is to bring together all professionals who can contribute to education. About 10-15 people are working on one textbook. Each edition is 10 thousand copies. They are distributed to 112 universities of Kazakhstan free of charge. These textbooks cover all humanities such as philosophy, history, linguistics, oriental studies, economics, entrepreneurship, pedagogy, psychology, sociology, and cultural studies.

- Such meetings give an opportunity to find out how those thoughts or conclusions that we make resonate with young people. This is an opportunity to "compare notes". Today's meeting with the students was very warm. I think I saw genuine interest. It is very pleasant to find a response in the views and in the questions that are asked during the conversation, R. Kenzhekhanuly shared his impressions.
