    Description

    Hi there!

    We are a youth club located in Borbash, a village in a valley surrounded by beautiful mountains in the south-west of Kyrgyzstan.

    In the beginning of 2019 we opened a youth center for the children and students of our village. Here we offer English, German and Turkish courses, which take place three times a week, as well as other activities organised by the teachers and children. In the past few months we have done a lot of projects such as picking herbs in the mountains, helping elderly people with their daily life, supporting disabled children and the students even opened their own library! But we do also love to just go hiking, do a fireplace, sit around it, eat our traditional food and sing.

    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.

    Please do not hesitate to message us if you should have any questions, we are always happy to help you and give you further information!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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.

    We can teach you Kyrgyz language and you could learn Russian, as most people here speak Russian as their second language. But not only is it about the language, Borbash has beautiful landscapes too. It is the perfect place to go hiking and camping. The students are always happy to take you up the mountains and show you parts only locals know about. As most of the families have huge gardens, you will be swimming in delicious fresh fruits and vegetables.
