Aidana Namazbekova, 13, lives in Lipenka, one of the oldest municipalities in Issyk-Kul region in northern Kyrgyzstan. Since her early childhood she loves to play komuz, a beautiful sound-ing Kyrgyz national music instrument. Until recently, Aidana had to travel 50 km twice a week to attend komuz classes in Kara-kol.

“I had to take Aidana to her private lessons in Karakol twice a week. In winter months, we couldn’t find a ride, and Aidana had to miss her lessons for several weeks” complains Aidana’s mother, Mahabat.

The trip was also quite expensive for the family budget.
