UMYUT has sponsored and administered a number of social assistance programs in the city of Balykchi since its inception and registration in November of 1991. These programs have been primarily aimed at improving the social condition of women, children and the elderly through providing them with opportunities and assistance that they might not otherwise have. UMYUT's main goal is to educate the local population and to help them to realize their full social, economic, cultural and professional potential.

UMYUT plans to expand its activities to include information distribution, computer training, English language education, an ecology club, a communication club, and an arts and crafts club.
