About Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan is a central Asian country with 66 different people groups, 31 of whom are classified as unreached. Kazakhstan´s largest people group is the Kazakhs who are a Turkish people and the second largest Muslim people group within Central Asia. The Kazakhs were traditionally nomadic shepherds and even though they are practicing Muslims there is still a large element of traditional animism evident in their beliefs and practices. Kazakhs are unusually open to evangelization efforts although radical Muslim clerics have arrived to preach a very strict form of Islam. Kazakhstan functions as a gateway to many isolated People Groups that may otherwise be very difficult to reach; for example Kazakh missionaries are able to evangelize to Afghan refuges who may in the future be able to bring Christianity back to the isolated villages of Afghanistan.

Christian Aid supports indigenous missionaries who seek to engage the unevangelized by working with the children and ministering to Afghan refugee camps.
