School Kits for Children in Kyrgyzstan

09:24 Sep 24 2014 Kyrgyzstan

Description
There has been considerable social and ethnic conflict following the removal of President Bakiyev from power in 2010. In addition to this and the pre-existing povery and economic downturn, many families, especially in the southern part of the country, struggle to fulfill their basic needs. School supplies have become too expensive for many to afford, which results in children not attending school.

School kits will allow many children to resume attending school, and will enable families to spend their money on their other basic needs.
