The great and long-awaited by all the residents event took place in Baymunduz village – the new kindergarten "Bayastan" opened its doors to young residents. It was eagerly awaited event by all the members of the community. Now, with the opening of the kindergarten, 90 children are able to receive pre-school education, and their parents have more free time for housekeeping and work.
The story of the kindergarten "Bayastan" began in 2012 at the village gathering, where the representatives of Local Self -Government (LSG) of Beshik Jon Aiyl Aimak and the residents found the lack of kindergarten as one of the most essential issues. Activities held to identify and prioritize the problems in the village were conducted with the support of Development Policy Institute’s Project " Strengthening Voice and Accountability of Citizens’ Participation and Oversight of Budget Processes Project in the Kyrgyz Republic" (SALSGIR Project) funded by the Government of Switzerland.
The total cost of construction amounted to 6 249 010 soms. The funds were received from the following sources: 2 199 010 soms from the local budget, 2 700 000 soms from the Ministry of Finance as incentive grant, 1 000 000 soms from the Small Grants Program of VAP Project and 350 000 soms collected by local community.
The new kindergarten gave 90 children from age 3 to 6 years an opportunity to learn and grow within an environment that is tailored to meet their academic and social needs. In addition, the new kindergarten provided an employment opportunity to 13 residents, who were employed as teachers, mentors and other service personnel. Parents, particularly mothers, now do not have to spend the whole day with children and they started looking employment opportunities.
The booklet was developed within the framework of the Project “Voice of Citizens and Accountability of Local Government: Budgetary Process”, funded by the Swiss Government through the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and implemented by the Development Policy Institute.
