Local development center in Urgut

Local development center in Urgut

Within the framework of a project funded by the European Union, activities are being carried out on the organizational and institutional development of the ICR in Urgut.

            The Local Development Center (ICD) of the Urgut District was opened by the SABR Center in 2011. The purpose of its opening is to improve the well-being and quality of life of young women and girls from low-income families. Center "Sabr" created it on its own as a pilot project in order to find out how much the center's services are in demand among the population. The successful activity of the Local Development Center has shown that it is necessary to build up its potential.

            The demand for ICR services allowed the Sabr Center to start opening similar centers in Akdarya and Samarkand within the framework of the project "Supporting the development of the local community for sustainable livelihoods and improving living standards in rural areas" under the partnership and institutional development program of the Commission of the European Union, as well as with the support of Public Fund for Support of NGOs and Other Civil Society Institutions under the Oliy Majlis of the Republic of Uzbekistan, in partnership with khokimiyats, women's committees, businessmen, the Regional Department of Secondary Specialized Professional Education and other interested organizations.

            During the implementation of the project, 136 women and girls at the ICR received such skills as sewing, confectionery, gold embroidery and hairdressing, took a course in computer literacy and knitting. Together with professional knowledge, they received the skills of successful communication, leading a healthy lifestyle, cultivating leadership qualities, and also underwent training in the basics of financial education and entrepreneurship, which are designed to help them in starting their own business, providing employment, revealing their abilities, talents, contributing to growth. the well-being of families.

            Psychologists, a doctor and a lawyer of the Sabr Center conduct field consultations in the psychological relief room of the ICR.

A typical story related to the opening of the Local Development Center in Urgut is told by Sitora, a volunteer teacher:

 

       - One of my neighbors received a microloan from the Subsidiary Enterprise “Microcredit Organization Sabr”. She told me about the Local Development Center in Urgut, where mentors taught various practical skills. I can and love to knit. Five months ago I came to the center and offered my help as a knitting trainer. Now in the center I teach girls to knit, for this I have been given a special room. I am very glad that I can pass on my skills to other people who want to get them. At the center, I met other girls, participated in classes and learned about the microfinance program. In the future, I would like to receive a microloan and start my own business
