Counterpart Consortium Offices in Central Asia (full text/addresses);

The site exists also in russian, see link on english homepage. is a Civil Society Support Initiative. A new program of the United States Agency on International Development USAID for Central Asian NGOs, exactly in Kasakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.

David Hoffman, Democracy Adviser in the Office of Democratization and Mass media of USAID’s Regional Office in Central Asia, expressed his wish to give an interview to “Initiative” on USAID’s new program so that more NGOs and other people interested in the development of civil society in Uzbekistan could learn about it. Before answering the questions he said: “USAID’s main task in the Central Asian region is to support the development of strong NGOs here, which would be able to directly, without support from international organizations, contact USAID after the Agency completes its programs and leaves the region. However, it is untimely to speak of this today. NGOs should pass full audit in the traditional understanding of the word. For the time being they cannot do without help from international organizations”.

About Our website is a part of the “NGO Support Initiative for Central Asia,” a project made possible through the support of USAID and managed by Counterpart International Inc. Counterpart Consortium has been working in Central Asia since late 1994. Current partners are the International Center for Not for Profit Law (ICNL), Aid to Artisans (ATA), and Counterpart International. Past partners are Goodwill International and Citizens Network for Foreign Affairs (CNFA). Our goal is to provide information about the NGO community in Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan) to people throughout the world as well as to the NGOs of Central Asia. Our hope is that the information provided about NGO’s activities in Central Asia and in other countries will foster partnership and cooperation among organizations and individuals, within Central Asia and internationally.
