Description of project activities:

It is proposed to involve four pilot libraries in the project: the Republican Library for Children and Youth (Bishkek), the Osh Regional Children's Library (Osh), the Batken Regional Library and the Talas Regional Library, in which to create training sites for adult education. To implement the project, it is proposed: to purchase equipment, train the heads of training centers on the development strategies of training centers, develop training programs based on the needs of the region, then train 120 students of an adult population (10 people in one month) based on a training program.


The project will help adults in the region adapt to the changing socio-economic situation, learn new skills, for example, avoid possible risks in obtaining a loan for business development, find a job as a copywriter after a course of computer skills, and so on. Accordingly, the skills acquired in the training centers will increase the competitiveness of the adult population of the regions and the city of Bishkek in the country's labor market.
