SABIRABAD – On October 2, residents of the Akhiskha community of Sabirabad rayon, representatives of the local ExCom and the municipality, officials from the Ministry of Economy and Industry (MEI), U.S. Embassy and the United State Agency for International Development (USAID) gathered to mark the successful completion of the renovation of a kindergarten. The kindergarten was renovated under the Socio-Economic Development Activity (SEDA) and was co-financed by the governments of Azerbaijan and the United States in close cooperation with the local non-governmental organization (NGO), UMID.

The Akhiskha community has long lacked an adequate kindergarten building and equipment to provide quality elementary education and day-care to children. To address this issue, residents of Akhiskha, through their Community Development Council, worked with the SEDA project and the municipality to renovate the kindergarten building. The much improved kindergarten, with five rooms, a kitchen and corridor will allow for safe and convenient education and care of 50 children.
