WFD NGO members had a chance to get acquainted with almost all the projects and initiatives of FTI branch offices in Bishkek, Oshi, Jalal-Abadi and Batken during their working visit. Projects referred mainly to youth groups, to the increase in trust between the population and local authorities, to the activities of “Social-preventive centers” functioning in different parts of Kyrgyzstan, to the issues of Kyrgyz-Tajik bordering regions.
