Isokhoja's story

Isokhoja happily works on his farm growing vegetables and wheat, crops that, when in season, help him pay their household expenses and necessities for his three children. His children are studying at school and need various supplies to keep studying. He wishes as a father that he can give his children what they need so they can progress through school and later work at jobs other than those in the agricultural sector. In this way, he thinks that many people consider him a hard-working and selfless father. Nonetheless, he now needs help in order to continue working. He needs to buy organic and chemical fertilizers, which are very important for growing products according to market demands. With your help, Isokhoja will be able to support his children's success.

More about Tajikistan and IMON International

Tajikistan is perhaps best known for its rich history, which includes a key post along the Silk Road; the end of Alexander the Great's rule; and with it’s famous great thinkers, philosophers, scientists and poets as: Rudaki, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), Firdousi, Omar Haiyam, Jomi, Mavlavi Rumi and many others. The country is home to communities that still speak the ancient Sogdian language, epic mountain passes, and a civilization that dates back to the 4th millennium BC. And, even today, it is a complex mixture of the Islamic faith, Soviet culture, New West culture and Central Asian traditions.

But, Tajikistan is also the poorest of the former Soviet republics. The civil war, which ignited soon after its independence from the U.S.S.R., further damaged the already weak economy. In addition, 93% of the country is mountainous and only 7% of the land is arable. These conditions have resulted in high levels of unemployment and have forced hundreds of thousands to seek work in other countries, mainly Russia. While the people of Tajikistan are working to improve its agricultural production and manufacturing sector, nearly two-thirds of the population still live in abject poverty.
