Economic Literacy

Project's mission is to enhance the understanding and knowledge of young people about basic economic principles and how they can make wise personal and policy choices based on the fundamentals of market economics.

We believe that everyone should have access to economic literacy, which is why we have three main activities that aim to promote economic education in Kyrgyzstan.

Our first activity is the promotion of the book Common Sense Economics: What Everyone Should Know About Personal and National Prosperity in Kyrgyz and Russian languages. This valuable resource covers the fundamental concepts of economics and is intended to assist school students with the enhancement of their financial literacy.

The second activity of the project is the International Economics Olympiad for school children. This event aims not only to elevate general awareness of the importance of economics and finance in our everyday lives but also to provide an opportunity for the most talented kids of Kyrgyzstan to showcase their skills and compete with other students from around the world. By participating in the Olympiad, students can gain valuable experience and develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Finally, we organize the annual Akchasana Conference, which serves as our flagship event. This conference brings together local influencers, celebrities, students, our social media followers, and people with a genuine interest in economics. At the conference, we discuss important economic issues and promote economic literacy in a fun and engaging way.
