More than 40,000 men in Kyrgyzstan are required to pay alimony for child support. But many more would have to do so if more women filed lawsuits to recover the child support to which they are entitled.
With the support of the USAID Collaborative Governance Program, CPVDs and FLACs provide support and assistance to thousands of vulnerable people like Meerim in Kyrgyzstan.
The USAID Collaborative Governance Program supported the creation and development of 27 local CPDVs to prevent domestic violence in targeted communities in Bishkek, Issyk-Kul and Osh oblasts. More than 3,477 representatives of the most vulnerable population received needed support and assistance.
The USAID Collaborative Governance Program, in collaboration with the Ministry of Justice, established 10 new FLACs to improve access to legal services for citizens, with a focus on the most vulnerable populations. This is in addition to the 15 existing FLACs. Since 2016, over 132,000 citizens have received free legal assistance at FLACs nationwide.
