E-commerce training of the “Digital Citizen” project in Balykchy

The second round of  training for the project “Sanarip Insan” began on March 10 in Balykchy.

Balykchy is the most important economic and transport center of the Issyk-Kul region.  This city is a place where three directions converge, or rather, the Chui region, located at the junction of highways covering the Northern and southern shores of Lake Issyk-Kul. The strategic location of the city contributed to the development of its trade markets and logistics infrastructure. These markets are actively traded throughout the year, and these markets attract people and businessmen from all over the Issyk-Kul region. The city is very conveniently located geographically: it is located a short distance between Kazakhstan and China; therefore, this place is considered the most important transport hub in the north of Kyrgyzstan, as railways, water and cars pass through it. For this reason, the training on e-commerce of the project “Sanarip Insan” started in the city of Balykchy

Training to improve the digital skills of the population in rural areas, this time is held on the topic “Electronic commerce”. In particular, the training participants learn in practice to take photos and videos (mobilography) of their products or services provided, edit, create a text description for them (copywriting) and place them on various electronic platforms.

More than 20 girls, women and young people took part in the training in Balykchy. During the training, the participants took pictures of their products in practice and posted photos on the Internet for presentation to their customers. Upon completion, all participants were awarded certificates stating that they had completed the training on “Electronic Commerce”. 

We would like to thank the Municipal Youth Center “Ordo” at the mayor’s office of the city of Balykchy for their help in organizing trainings for the project “Sanarip Insan”, as well as the mayor’s office and the Center “Citizen and Digital Education” at the CEC of the city of Balykchy for informational support.
