Project Description

This project aims to promote multilingualism in the Kyrgyz Republic, to foster an environment enabling broader integration, especially of minorities while promoting protection of their rights. If all ethnic groups of Kyrgyzstan speak the state language while having an opportunity to learn their mother tongues, know more about the different cultures and are aware of the rights of minorities, and participate on equal footing in public life, then the society of Kyrgyzstan will become more inclusive and stable which is essential for ensuring a durable peace.
