The living conditions in many Kyrgyz villages are very difficult. Most households do not have  ccess to improved water and sanitation systems. In the cold winters, the heating costs are very high. This project will use new approaches to improve this situation through involving the youth and women as well as applying locally trained staff and local materials.

The project aims at working with local school children and selfhelp groups to promote safe sanitation and sustainable energy alternatives. This will facilitate further work with the local villages and authorities to develop a set of Environmental Joint Action Plans (EAPs). EAPs will be designed and used by locals, allowing capacity building and peer learning in a gender-sensitive manner.
