Exchange visit from our colleagues in Tajikistan at RDF

RDF is actively involved and interested in sharing its experience and accumulated knowledge through participation in numerous project activities, exchange visits and seminars.

From 15 to 19 November, 2011, we received two representatives of a Tajik NGO, “NISSS”, Khafizova Savriniso, the director, and Manucher Rakhimov, a program specialist, from the Rasht district of Tajikistan, as part of exchanging experience between employees of the RDF and NISSS.

During their stay in Bishkek, the RDF staff presented the activities of the organisation and the materials on the implemented projects on Kyrgyz traditional knowledge and other areas to the Tajik delegates. Meetings were also organized with partner and donor organizations, including representatives from Christensen Fund, at which they discussed plans and prospects for the further development of joint activities. The Tajik delegates also had an opportunity to meet with Dzhanyshbaeva Altyn, the leader of the Pastoral Network, “Kyrgyz El Akyl Kazyna”, and familiarized themselves with the activities of the Network and their outcomes.

“We are grateful to the colleagues from RDF for the attention and opportunity they provided,” says Savriniso. “We hope that our next meeting will be in Tajikistan, where it will be our turn to be the hospitable hosts.”

We believe that such occasions serve to strengthen friendship and cooperation between the two countries and help to achieve better results in achieving goals and intentions.
