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

On March 14, training of the Sanarip Insan project was held in the Tendik village of Kochkor region.

The population is mainly engaged in agriculture. A felt festival is held in Kochkor, where guests can get to know Kyrgyz culture and customs more closely, participate in a master class on wool felting, felt dressing and the art of creating colored patterns, and purchase original products.

The Kochkor Valley (or more precisely, the plateau) has recently been very popular with tourists, because here, in the midst of mountain splendor, the colorful and original traditions of the Kyrgyz people have been preserved in their original form.

Here you can participate in the installation and design of a yurt, make a felt rug (shyrdak) yourself at a master class, see a folklore show and national games, listen to Kyrgyz music performed by original musicians, and also take part in horse riding.

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 15 girls, women and young people took part in the training in Kochkor. 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 public association “Kochkor Initiative Youth” for their help in organizing the training “E-commerce”.

The “Sanarip Insan” project is being implemented by the European Neighborhood and Unification Council, the  “Internet Society Kyrgyz Chapter”, with the financial support of the European Union.

We would like to thank Issyk-Kul State University named after K. Tynystanov for assisting in the organization of training on “Electronic commerce”, as well as Issyk-Kul TV for providing informational support.
