Since 2016, over 132,000 people have received legal assistance from 25 Free Legal Aid Centers established by the Ministry of Justice’s Center for Coordination of State-Guaranteed Legal Aid. Many of the MoJ’s initiatives were supported by the USAID Collaborative Governance Program, the joint project of the Finnish Foreign Ministry - UNDP "Towards a sustainable access to justice for legal empowerment in the Kyrgyz Republic", and Soros Foundation – Kyrgyzstan.
