CHARITY CHALLENGE - KYRGYZSTAN

2nd to 11th July 2021


CHALLENGE:

Gulf for Good challengers will take part in a wild and fantastic trekking journey through the mountains, lakes, forests and traditional villages of Kyrgyzstan. This challenge will take them through some of the most remote areas of the country where they'll experience traditional life, explore high altitude lakes in the mountains, and pass by incredible ice glaciers.

CHARITY PROJECT:

The remote Ananyevo municipality in the Issyk-Kul region of Kyrgyzstan urgently needs a local meeting point to connect community members and boost learning and social activities. Our goal is to raise AED185,000 (USD50,000) to build this centre on a plot of land that has been provided by the local government, and running costs to be managed by the municipality.

By building such a facility in this rural area, we will be improving the lives of 165 vulnerable families, 180 children and 12,000 inhabitants of the surrounding villages. The community centre is not just a physical structure, but also provides a space where parents receive training courses to increase their employability and parental skills and help with daily challenges. It will also serve as a venue where children play, learn and do their homework, as well as a hub for cultural and sports events.

Your investment will give the children and families of Ananyevo connection to the world, and a better, brighter future!
