Central Asia Institute
Kyra has partnered with Central Asia Institute, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to empower communities of Central Asia through literacy and education, especially for girls; to promote peace through education; and to convey the importance of these activities globally.
Because we believe education is the surest path to world peace. Education empowers individuals and strengthens communities. There are many reasons why access to education, particularly for girls, in these rural, often high-conflict areas in non-existent or restricted. In many communities, there is no school. In others, there are no teachers. Often times children can’t afford the required uniforms and school supplies, so they are unable to attend. These and other hurdles are even greater for women and girls: Two-thirds of the world’s illiterate people are female. (Unesco)
