ICCO in Kyrgyzstan

We work in coalition with a range of local stakeholders ranging from civil society, government and corporate sector is central.

As over the last decade, the major primary target group are rural communities in which the various programs focus respectively on small farmers and producer organizations, migrants and their families, and people with disability. ICCO works for the inclusive society and fair economic development in Kyrgyzstan.

In Kyrgyzstan ICCO has a record of providing effective solutions to the challenges in the regional consulting market. The organization has implemented complex studies and projects in Central Asia and can provide outstanding services in strategic business areas to assist in the successful development of non-profit organizations.

What we do

In Kyrgyzstan, the primary goal of ICCO is to promote inclusive society and fair economic development.  Specifically, ICCO has five areas of focus:

  • Economic empowerment – ensuring  alternative and sustainable livelihoods for future  migrants by creating job and business (self-employment) opportunities, as well as building favourable conditions for income generating activities.
  • Inclusion –  working with children with disabilities (CWD) and their parents to challenge societal stereotypes so that they can lead a life of dignity in an inclusive society
  • Youth employability & entrepreneurs – to improve the living conditions of rural youth in the Issyk-Kul region by supporting their economic activities.
  • Food security – supporting vulnerable groups to improve their nutrition status through advanced and diversified food production, as well as improved food infrastructure.

About Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is known as the island of democracy in Central Asia and depends on oil and gas imports and remittances from labor migrants. Poverty is widespread, especial in rural areas where about two-thirds of total population reside. The quality of education and health care has decreased significantly since Soviet times. A large section of the male population is migrating seasonally to Russia and Kazakhstan due to lack of employment. Agriculture contributes a third of the GDP and employs about half of the workforce.
