Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: Kyrgyzstan

Location: Bishkek

Total Budget: $40,000

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Maternal and child health

This project will develop rural villages through a holistic approach with a primary emphasis on health education. We will establish a Training Center to train trainers to go into villages in the Chatkal and Batken regions to educate local community members who will continue the training on a long-term basis, thereby transforming the community. Among the topics to be covered are pregnancy, childbirth, and nutrition. Developing a training center will allow us to train our own staff as well as other staff working with local non-profits in the principles of effective community development.

Primary Project objectives:

Reduction in unnecessary medical expenses incurred through a misinformed medical system

A measurable reduction in preventable disease based on application of principles learned in community health trainings

Improved maternal and prenatal health and birth outcomes.

Primary Budget Items:

Vehicle to transport trainers to and from training villages

Training materials on topics such as pregnancy, childbirth, and nutrition

Training of trainers

Community training expenses

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
