Thank you very much indeed for your time to visit our campaign. If you are not in a position of making a donation, please, just share this link with your friends/colleagues, by one click you can do a lot for hundreds of children suffering in rural areas.

WHAT WILL BE THE PROJECT BENEFIT?
The project will make it possible to:
— educate at least 30-40 children per year via covering them by kindergarten
— employ at least 20 people, particularly women from rural areas
— release at least 30-40 rural women from family burdens and they can also work while their children is in kindergarten and last, not least
improves economic development and welfare of public in a vulnerable area such as Ghonchi district.

We would welcome any smallest amount of donation you can make. 

Update on June 2, 2014: we mobilized 1000USD from the local Development Bank of Tajikistan.
Update on May 23, 2014: several friends (from Somon Air ($200), two friends from Japan ($200) and a colleague from UN OHCHR Tajikistan ($100) donated 500USD in total.

My name is Muhiddin Tojiev. I am from Ghazantarak village, Ghonchi district in Tajikistan. We are an international team of volunteers and  representatives from local NGOs, Local Executive Authorities and media representatives, raising funds for a project, which is vitally important for development and future of our children.

Ghazantarak village is one of the remote villages in Tajikistan with more than 7000 residents. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, no kindergarten is functioning in this village. The village residents have to take their children to the kindergartens located in the administrative centre of Ghonchi district, for which they have to pass through the distance of 2km. In winter period, the majority of children do not attend kindergartens, which is negatively impacting their brain development and education.

The Local Authorities allocated the premises of a former school in the village to establish a kindergarten, which needs to be refurbished fully. The Local Authorities’ budget is very limited since Ghonchi district is one of the poorest districts in the country (Tajikistan is the poorest economy in the post soviet area) subsidized by the Public Budget. However, despite of these difficulties, they already allocated 5000 U.S. dollars as their small contribution and they want to help with the labor force during the refurbishment also.

According to estimates, we will need about 50 000 U.S. dollars to refurbish the building for establishment of a small kindergarten for about 100 children. What we need particularly:

For the purpose of transparency, we established a Joint Monitoring Committee, which includes representatives from civil society, parents’ association, local authorities and independent experts as well as media representatives. Pictures after the refurbishment of the kindergarten will be also sent to all donor organizations and individuals. Therefore we would appreciate it if you could provide your e-mail addresses.

If we do not reach our goal within this campaign, we will still use the collected amount for the establishment of a smaller building for about 50 children first. The local commercial banks and the residents already helped with the procurement of 50 pieces of bed.

Since at present children in Ghazantarak village do not have any opportunity to attend kindergarten and pre-school facilities, it is obvious that their performance in school is lower than it could be. This project would make it possible to use the potential of small children and young people fully for the socio-economic development of Tajikistan, which is the poorest economy in the former Soviet Union area.

As for the Project’s sustainability, the kindergarten will be financed and maintained by the government budget in the future. It will employ more than 30 people and provide accommodation to 100 children in the future annually.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any question or need further information. We would be more than happy to provide more information via e-mail or make a presentation online via Skype.Would be grateful for your feedback to improve this campaign as well.

Our apologies for not being able to offer more interesting perks since it is hard to mail something from Tajikistan. 

We would appreciate it if you could also distribute this word among your colleagues and friends, communities to help us achieve this noble objective. You can use the Indiegogo share tools!
