In following a great tradition of Peace Corps Kyrgyzstan, Temirlan Batyrkanov has been selected by the K18s to visit America in the spirit of friendship and cultural exchange. As a Peace Corps Language and Cultural Facilitator, he teaches Kyrgyz and Russian to a new batch of American volunteers every year, as well as sharing the intricacies of Central Asian culture and the values of its people. It is essential that he experiences the United States firsthand. During his visit, he will be the guest of a number of RPCVs, who will show him the same warmth and hospitality he demonstrated to us while we were living in his country. As a secondary project, Temirlan will raise money for a local orphanage near his village during his visit to the States, to provide them with essentials we take for granted, like a washing machine and winter clothes. Let's make this happen. The goal is to pay for his round-trip airfare from Bishkek and back, and for a few domestic flights in the U.S., so he can experience the diversity of our country.
