The association was formed in April, 1997 by the Committee of Soldiers' Mothers of Kazakstan with a mission to protect soldiers' rights. The association's activities include gathering and publishing information on rights violations of those currently in active military service, helping soldiers to obtain legal counsel, and increasing public awareness of soldiers' rights.The group has declared its fundamental goal to be "the protection of the lives, health, honour, and dignity of soldiers from the Republic of Kazakstan through all stages of military service."
