“Preventing corruption through education and consciousness-raising”.

The project was implemented with the support of the McCain Institute.

The aim of the project was to introduce a course of anti-corruption policy in Regional Universities of the Kyrgyz Republic and its further institutionalization, which will contribute to the formation of anti-corruption consciousness of youth and their intolerance to corruption.

 At the regional universities, there was absolutely no ongoing work on the implementation of courses on countering corruption at the university, we considered it important to use this grant for implementation of this course at regional universities, as well as for advanced training of regional universities teachers on countering corruption issues. 

Another important reason was the vulnerability of students of regional universities from corruption manifestations in universities and the lack of awareness about the tools and mechanisms for countering this evil. 

The project was implemented in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Science of the Kyrgyz Republic. 

The training was conducted for teachers of 5 universities located in Osh and 3 universities in Jalal-Abad. All these universities are located in southern Kyrgyzstan, in the most densely populated region. In total, 50 teachers and professors of these universities were trained.  

The training was conducted for teachers of Naryn State University too (this is the northern region of the republic). 30 teachers from the university were trained.

A Memorandum of Cooperation with the rectors (head of the university) of universities was signed, within the framework of which the parties agreed on the introduction of these courses at universities, as well as advisory support from our organization of teachers of these universities.
