Village Elders Make Crafts

Making crafts as part of their daily activities at the Aged Persons Center in the village of Bokonbaevo, Kyrgyzstan, is one form of mental stimulation and socializing aimed at reducing stress levels in elderly and often vulnerable local residents. The center was furnished and equipped using a grant implemented jointly by the UN Women and the Kumtor Operating Company, a large gold mining operating in Kyrgyzstan.
