Stories of rural women

Alma Karsymbek/Asyl Jakieva

A joint UN Women, FAO and WFP project used a collection of letters from rural Kyrgyzstan women to build a dialogue between them and their local municipal and private service providers. This collection examines best practices that arose from the rural women's involvement in the joint project after project members analysed the stories in the letters and traveled from village to village to run campaigns to curb discrimination and violence against women and girls and help them earn economic, political and social rights and increased access to local health care services.
