Support Camp Durakhshon, Tajikistan

Dear Well-Wisher, 

In Ishkashim district centre, a rural town in the mountainous province of Tajik Badakhshan, children mostly spend their summer holidays at home as there are no educational or enrichment programs available. As a result, many children remain ignored and the enthusiasm and value for learning tends to be replaced by engagement in other unproductive social habits. In response to this challenge for the very young members of the community, the Durakhshon camp, a collective civic response by the young professionals in the community was considered in 2016. The Durakhshon camp aims to serve the members of the Ishkashim community by creating a rich learning environment in summer time so that young children can learn,  play, explore, share ideas, listen to other peers, and have a meaningful and productive summer with old and new friends.

Durakhshon camp – initiated by a group of volunteer professionals, has been successfully implemented in the rural town of Ishkashim district since 2016 with the support of generous donors from Tajikistan and abroad, and during this period it has been able to serve over 220 children of ages 5 to 8 years old.

To get the program launched this year, we are again kindly requesting financial support from any of our well-wishers and donors, both locally and globally. 

Please continue to regularly follow us on our Facebook site: https://www.facebook.com/Ishkoshim.kids/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel for more information and updates.

Thank you for helping us to implement this summer program!

Warmly,

Durakhshon TEAM
