The ceremonial opening of a new kindergarten in Ak-Tuz village of Kemin rayon has happened few days ago.  

Kindergarten was designed for 70 children aged from 2 to 6 years old. Children will be brought up in three groups. Such capacity is relevant to a small village with a population of about 800 people.

The ceremony was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Kyrgyz Republic, Government representatives of the Kyrgyz Republic in Chui oblast and local self-governments of Kemin rayon, as well as representatives of UNDP in the KR.

“Over the past two decades we haven’t have a kindergarten in the village. In the past year it became possible to renovate completely the municipal building of the former kindergarten, which was built in 50s. With the grant support of Russia, kindergarten has been equipped with new furniture and necessary electrical facilities,” - says Gulnara Duyshekeeva, the Preschool director.

Within the framework of the UNDP project “Socio-economic development of communities around radioactive sites”, sets of children's furniture, water heaters, refrigerators, electric cookers, vacuum cleaners, TV sets and other electrical facilities for playgrounds, bedrooms, and kitchen have been provided. Total provided grant aid comprised 763 thousand KGS.

The project “Socio-economic development of communities around radioactive sites” is funded by the Russian Government and implemented by UNDP in the Kyrgyz Republic. This project is aimed at creating conditions for sustainable development of the municipalities located near radioactive tailings - the city of Orlovka and Min-Kush, Kadji-Sai and Ak-Tyuz villages and has been implemented since 2015.

As part of the project, currently it is provided grant support to local self-governments and a number of local communities for the rehabilitation of education and health facilities, the establishment of business enterprises and creation of new jobs. Besides, today the measures are being taken on improvement of the access to clean drinking water by residents of these settlements.
