About Us

The Centre stands for to assist secondary school pupils from low-income families to receive a Governmental educational Grant as they are often under-represented in universities and colleges in Kyrgyzstan as their financial positions are often an obstacles for entering the university. The secondary schools in Kyrgyzstan are seriously crippled by the eternal lack of funding, library and qualified teachers which leads to producing the young generation which is mercenary, poor educated and have no sense of citizenship. In 2002 the Ministry for Education introduced a new form of entrance into the universities and colleges of Kyrgyzstan. It is a National Test, which if one passes successfully means one can study without paying. The statistics have shown that only students from wealthy families get this kind of governmental grant. The reason is that their parents pay for additional lessons from private tutors who prepare these students for the test. The students from low-income families could not receive this scholarship because their families’ income is barely enough to support their families' existence. So, in 2003 as a response to this problem we started to provide free additional tutoring for the secondary school pupils from low-income families who wish to continue their education and receive a governmental grant. We deliver classes on English Language, Mathematics, Economics, World History, Human rights, Arts, Chemistry, and Biology. The teachers-volunteers who deliver these tutoring are the best students from the universities of Kyrgyzstan. To date our activity is supported neither financially nor technically. We pay for the rental of classrooms and buy furniture and teaching materials ourselves.
