In 2012, USAID through the Eurasia Foundation of Central Asia (EFCA) launched a two-year “Women`s Peace Banks” program to provide opportunities for women in the South of Kyrgyzstan in taking the lead in interethnic reconciliation and in promoting the role of women in peace building at the local level. The Program has been implemented in Osh and Jalal-Abad. During the program EFCA organized 16 Women’s Initiative Groups in Osh and Jalal-Abad that select social development projects proposed by local residents. EFCA provided small grants to the Initiative Groups and helped them find required co-financing for their projects from local authorities, private companies or other sources. This document is the performance evaluation of the project.
