As Kyrgyzstan being mountainous country, most of the villages in remote regions have a poor conditions in schools. In order to support and sustain children’s participation in local school’s activities, Project of Strengthening School Parliaments to improve Children’s Participation in Local, Regional and National Decision-Making was launched in 2011 ans lasted for three years. The project was founded by the European Union’s thematic programme “Investing in People” and Aga Khan Foundation.

  • 177 schools from mountainous regions have participated in the project. The total number of children is approximately 62 000.
Students from schools received knowledge about their rights and responsibilities.

┬áThe project’s purpose was to enhance children’s capacity to understand and analyse issues affecting their rights and well-being as well as related challenges and opportunities, and to empower children to take an active role in the solution of problems in their communities.
