Promotion of IT skills

The Soros Foundation-Kyrgyzstan supports the promotion of IT skills among young people with the aim of increasing the number of jobs in the highly profitable IT industry, with Kyrgyzstan already being a leader among the countries of the region. Our vision is that children choose technical specialties as their future education while being schools students. After all, the acquisition of professional IT skills will allow young people to easily find jobs in highly paid sectors of the economy and work for foreign IT companies while living in Kyrgyzstan. Our goal for the next four years is to promote the image of Kyrgyzstan as the country of IT outsourcing with a high level of IT education.

In addition, the Foundation will continue to support major IT education activities aimed at converting knowledge and ideas into products, services and technologies (Hackathons, Start-up Fest, Hour Code, etc.).
