Welcome!

IMG 876300"Welcome to our website. The staff of the Collaborative Governance Program and I encourage you to take a few minutes to look through our website and begin to learn more about the services we have provided and will continue to provide to the members of Civil Society and the citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic. Our program is funded through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), US Embassy’s Democracy Commission, and the United Kingdom's Department for International Development (DFID) and is being implemented by the East West Management Institute. Our journey began in March of 2013 and will come to an end in September 2018. During this period, we will offer various forms of technical assistance, training, and grant funding support to  Kyrgyz civil society organizations and support for select governmental initiatives, including free access to justice, with the common goal of facilitating ever-increasing positive and productive interactions between civil society and their counterparts in the public and private sectors. Please visit our website to follow our progress but more importantly to follow the progress of the Kyrgyzstani women and men who make up this critical and vibrant aspect of the Kyrgyz community."
