UNICEF Kyrgyzstan

UNICEF Kyrgyzstan

In 1992, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) was invited by the Kyrgyz Government to discuss potential collaboration. At that time, Kyrgyzstan had an annual inflation rate of around 855 per cent and nearly 75 per cent of the workforce was unemployed. Scarce resources and a growing debt burden were undermining social services, threatening the right of every child to basic social services. In 1994, UNICEF began to assist the government and civil society organizations to fulfill their obligations under the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and to empower children to fully claim their rights.
