The United States has donated over 12,000 English-language books to 30 schools, libraries, and universities in the Osh, Jalal-Abad, and Batken regions of south Kyrgyzstan.

The donation includes books for all ages – children to adults – and covering a wide range of subjects, is an invaluable resource for learning the English language. “These books are more than just paper and ink,” said U.S. Ambassador to the Kyrgyz Republic Lesslie Viguerie. “They are keys that unlock the world of English language learning and bridges connecting the people of the Kyrgyz Republic and the United States.” The donation was further praised by Akylai Karim, Project Leader at the Rotary Club of Fergana Valley and Women Peace Bank, who announced:  “This initiative is a celebration of the Kyrgyz-American friendship, trust, and collaboration. It will have a lasting, positive impact as youth learn English by reading these books and dream big about their future.”
