MAP in Kyrgyzstan was initially implemented by the local NGO Foundation for Tolerance International (FTI), with Tajyka Shabdanova serving as Co-Investigator and Anara Eginalieva as the Project Manager. In Kyrgyzstan, MAP aimed to engage youth in peacebuilding efforts in various regions, such as Batken, Bishkek, Jalal-Abad, and Osh. Over 200 young people aged between 14-17, coming from diverse ethnic and social backgrounds, actively participated in the project as members of MAP Youth Clubs.
