Improving the lives of young rural women from Kazakhstan

Improving the lives of young rural women from Kazakhstan

Yuma Center hosts its partner organization, American Initiatives, for an evening with the directors of the Kumbel Training Center for Women in Kazakhstan!


Tuesday, October 16th from 7:30 - 9pm

Suggested donation: $10 (ALL proceeds from this lecture will go directly to the Kumbel Training Center for women in Kazakhstan!)

Join us for a lecture and discussion, following by wine reception.

What is the Kumbel Training Center for Women?

Young women in rural areas of Kazakhstan have limited access to education and opportunities for advancement, suffer gender discrimination and are likely to fall into alcoholism and prostitution. Some migrate to urban areas in search of a better life, but their lack of formal education and training limit their job opportunities and ability to improve their lives and financial situation. Kazakhstan Foundation for Cultural, Social and Educational Development (KFCSED) is addressing these needs in a two-way approach:

  • Providing education, skill training and personal development to women from rural areas

  • Raising awareness and promoting a culture of solidarity among young women from urban areas.
