We are located in Borbash, a village in a valley surrounded by mountains in the south-west of Kyrgyzstan.
In the beginning of 2019 we opened up the "information center" a youth center for the kids and teenagers of the village. Here we offer english and turkish courses, as well as other activities, such as excursions.
We would like volunteers to help with language lessons, mainly english and turkish, but there is also interest in other languages (e.g. german). As this is an out of school activity, it is not so much about strict grammar teaching, but rather about talking with the children, sharing about your culture, playing language games, doing activities together. Experience in teaching is welcome, but not required.We encourage you to bring your own ideas! If you want you can do your own lessons, come up with activities.
Also teachers from the local school would be happy if you could from time to time support them in their language lessons.
While the language courses with children is a main focus, you could also do/ start other projects, e.g. work with parents, farming projects, work with children with disabilities...
Many people from this area migrate to different countries. We would like to give the young generation perspectives to make a good living in Kyrgyzstan!

The people in the village and especially the kids are eager to meet people from abroad, hear about different cultures and share their own.
While in Borbash you will be emersed in rural kyrgyz life, eat local cuisine, take part in local festivities.

What we offer:
- accommodation: you will be hosted by one or more families over the duration of your stay. If you prefer, we can arrange for a private place
- food
- teaching kyrgyz- language
- if you want to stay longer, we can help you extend your visa for half a year/ year

Languages spoken: Kyrgyz, russian, english, turkish
