"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  our activities and about support we will continue to provide to the Civil Society Organizations and the citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic. Our programs are funded through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the US Embassy’s Democracy Commission. Our journey began in March of 2013 and will end in March 2020. During this period, we will offer various forms of technical assistance, training, and grant funding support to Kyrgyz civil society organizations and support for governmental as well as civilian 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 our partners."
