Erayim Aid Trust UK helps to promote the education of children in Kyrgyzstan both directly and through the professional development of their teachers, thereby improving opportunities for meaningful careers in the future. The Trust was created to support a local non-governmental organisation in the Kyrgyz Republic. Women’s Public Union Erayim enjoys a high reputation for probity, integrity and efficiency both at home and amongst its European and US donors. The Kyrgyz government provides active support if not financial assistance. Erayim Aid Trust UK remains independent of Erayim, while providing the funds and volunteers to run various educational projects in the country.
