Saferworld has been working in Kyrgyzstan since 2010 to improve cooperation and understanding between ethnic groups, communities, the police and local authorities. Together with our partners, we develop networks to address issues which affect people’s security. We also advocate to government officials and civil society for improved policies and services for conflict-affected communities and for effective conflict prevention.
Our work focuses in particular on women and young people – who are often left out of decision-making processes.
In Kyrgyzstan we are working on:
Addressing the causes of violence in communities – we work to build safer communities in Kyrgyzstan.
Gender, peace and security – we promote gender equality and challenge harmful stereotypes in Kyrgyzstan.
Empowering youth – we work with youth from different backgrounds to ensure that their concerns are addressed.
