History of NGO "Nachoti kudakon"

NGOs activity became the most valuable and tangible in response to urgent needs of the society. This is the reason of foundation of NGO "Nachoti kudakon. Kulob and its surrounding areas were mostly injured in opposition during Civil War and fatal consequences such as deaths became irreversible. Therefore, the most affected during civil war were the children, forever deprived of parental love, care, custody, which henceforth are related to orphans. Without any exaggeration we consider that the life of most of them was under the threat of starvation. There was no one resolving above-mentioned threat during postwar chaos. Despite, few people existed to devote their efforts. Kurbongul Kosimova is attributed to those few, who left her prestigious work in metropolitan hospital and moved to Kulob.

In assistance with Valentina Levkina, Latofat Ismoilova, Nodira Nabieva, Dilbar Murodova and Fatima Rakhmonalieva, Kurbongul had spent their initial funds for purchase of educational uniforms, ABC books, and notebooks to equip 120 first-grades. Later, they regularly have organized such holidays as New Year celebration and Navruz for deprived children. Hence, NGO Najoti kudakon was founded.

NGO Najoti kudakon is the first organization in Kulob region of Khatlon area aimed to promote a Civil Society development model. As a legal body it exercises its activity since August 1994. NGO Najoti kudakon is non-governmental, non-profit organization, founded in 1993 by the group of 5 women, who are the widows of the Civil War.
