UN holidays

Today, October 15, is celebrated around the world as the International Day of Rural Women. It was established by the UN in 2007.

The General Assembly noted the important role of rural women in agricultural and rural development, their contribution to improving food security and eradicating poverty.

According to statistics, rural women make up more than a quarter of the world’s population. In Kyrgyzstan, women, especially rural women, are active participants in all social and entrepreneurship processes. Their contribution to the country’s economy is significant. More than a third of the guarantees of the OJSC “GF” were provided to women-entrepreneurs.

The essence of this date is not only to recognize their role and contribution to the development of society and economy, but also to ensure their personal and family rights, access to medicine, education, finance, information and communication technologies.
