How do you see change?
Burulai Aitikulova from the Aga Khan Foundation – Kyrgyz Republic Shares Seeing Change in Children’s Smiles
For me, the image that comes to mind is children enjoying the materials we created and developed: colorful story books and an animated TV series full of joy, reaching every family in the country.
The picture shows a two-year-old child in the yurt kindergarten established by AKF, playing with a puppet character from a fairy tale. The children perform the fairy tale and draw and paint different scenes on the stones.
The kindergarten is in the most remote jailoo (pasture) in the mountains of Naryn province, at an elevation of over 12,000 feet, on the border with China. About 25 to 30 children attend this jailoo kindergarten for three months a year when they are in the summer pastures with their families.
Far from schools, they still have access to storybooks and learn through playing and performing stories from the storybooks. Jailoo kindergarten is an excellent opportunity to keep their education going while they are away in the high pasture. The children learn about nature, culture and traditions.
