Lira's story

Lira graduated from the New Generation Academy of AUCA this year, and enrolled AUCA, department of Sociology. Lira was one of the finalists of ACCESS Program. She was a responsible, motivated student during the whole program, and was highly respected among other students. She conducted training independently, and made very good presentations on education projects, as well as worked on social projects. ACCESS Program is a competitive program, and participants are from all over Kyrgyzstan. This year, 270 students have been selected, and Lira is known to be one of the honored students between 20. Lira is proficient in MS programs, such as MS Office, Moviemaker, Picaso, etc. Lira also participated in “Summer School of Democracy 2012”, where she had the opportunity of meeting with senior officials. It is worth mentioning the Lira’s contribution to social project of ACCESS Program is collecting books for orphanages of Kant city. She also opened classes at American Corner where she was teaching children drawing and making presentations on great painters of the world. All the above mentioned experiences will give her an opportunity to take an active part of social life at AUCA, and greatly make contributions to it. But her family cannot fully pay the tuition fees. So, Lira needs Kiva loan so that she could study without thinking about finance.
