The Elnura Foundation supports children living in difficult circumstances in the Central Asian country of Kyrgyzstan, in order to offer them a chance of a  self-sufficient future.

2021 10 Website Home» One in three children live in poverty.

» Thousands of children, most of whom still have a living parent, live in children´s homes.

» Over 11% of children under 17 were born to migrant workers and at least one of their parents lives abroad.

» Around 18.000 children of domestic migrants (from the countryside to the city) are mostly ´invisible´ in society, because they don´t have any identity documents. These children cannot go to school, they don´t have a right to healthcare or social services, and often live in precarious housing in the suburbs of Bishkek. Their access to water, gas, electricity, sanitary facilities and means of communication is limited.

» Around 40% of children ages 5 to 17 are forced to work. More or less 65% of these children work in dangerous conditions.

All of these children are at high risk of falling victim to abuse, exploitation and violence.

The local organisation Center for the Protection of Children (CPC), based in Kyrgyzstan´s capital city Bishkek, has been committed to helping these children for over 20 years, mainly in the deprived areas of the city. The Elnura Foundation works closely together with the CPC.

              Our motto is ´helping matters´.
