Uzbekistan Today (English) - - FRONT PAGE -

Last week, Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan Shavkat Mirziy­oyev vis­ited the Bukhara re­gion to re­view the re­forms car­ried out on the ground.

The head of our state got ac­quainted with large-scale eco­nomic projects, mod­ern en­ter­prises set up in the field, vis­ited ed­u­ca­tional and med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions, talked with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of var­i­ous spheres. Dur­ing every trip to the re­gions of the re­pub­lic, the Pres­i­dent pays much at­ten­tion to the im­ple­men­ta­tion of youth pol­icy. The lat­est tour was not an ex­cep­tion.

Young peo­ple un­der 30 make up 48% of the pop­u­la­tion of the Bukhara re­gion. Ex­ten­sive ef­forts are un­der­taken to nur­ture the younger gen­er­a­tion as phys­i­cally healthy and spir­i­tu­ally ma­ture in­di­vid­u­als, help them re­al­ize their tal­ents and po­ten­tial. In par­tic­u­lar, enor­mous em­pha­sis is placed on the devel­op­ment of the sys­tem of preschool ed­u­ca­tion, the qual­ity prepa­ra­tion of chil­dren for school.

Cur­rently, 343 pre-school ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions op­er­ate in the re­gion, seven of which are non­govern­men­tal, one is sub­or­di­nate to the Depart­ment of In­ter­nal Af­fairs. They bring up more than 46 thou­sand boys and girls, that is, 35.1% of all chil­dren of the province.

Kinder­garten № 54 Bukhara is de­signed for 280 kids. Last year, its build­ing was thor­oughly ren­o­vated and equipped in ac­cor­dance with mod­ern re­quire­ments.

The head of state got ac­quainted with the con­di­tions cre­ated for chil­dren here, talked with the staff of the kinder­garten. In­for­ma­tion was pro­vided on the pi­lot cen­ter for short-term pri­mary devel­op­ment of chil­dren. Here, preschool chil­dren in short-term groups us­ing in­ter­ac­tive meth­ods are taught logic, men­tal arith­metic, English, ap­plied and visual arts. The cen­ter will fa­cil­i­tate the prepa­ra­tion for the school of chil­dren not cov­ered by kinder­gartens.

The Pres­i­dent gave in­struc­tions to turn this kinder­garten into a re­gional cen­ter for the ex­change of method­olog­i­cal ex­per­tise, to pro­vide the sphere with qual­i­fied spe­cial­ists, in­clud­ing by re­cruit­ing col­lege grad­u­ates for re­train­ing and place­ment cour­ses in pre-school ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions.

Shavkat Mirziy­oyev got ac­quainted with the ac­tiv­ity of the Youth Cen­ter in Bukhara, where he watched the process of study­ing in the hobby clubs un­der the cen­ter.

Last year the old build­ing of the former Palace of Cul­ture was thor­oughly ren­o­vated and turned into a Youth Cen­ter. Now the mod­ern three-story build­ing houses the Bukhara Re­gional Coun­cil of the Union of Youth of Uzbek­istan. A con­fer­ence hall for 808 seats and a cinema hall for 280 seats will con­trib­ute to the ef­fec­tive im­ple­men­ta­tion of projects aimed at in­creas­ing the so­cial ac­tiv­ity of young peo­ple and hold­ing var­i­ous cul­tural events.

In the cen­ter there are more than 20 hobby clubs, in­clud­ing for English and Rus­sian lan­guage, chess and drafts, table ten­nis, act­ing skills, prepa­ra­tion of girls for fam­ily life, youth tourism, preschool and in­clu­sive ed­u­ca­tion, fine arts, sewing and other ar­eas, as well as a psy­cho­log­i­cal cen­ter con­sul­ta­tions and a li­brary with a stock of four thou­sand books. The head of our state was pro­vided with in­for­ma­tion on new hobby clubs or­ga­nized in the current year, promis­ing projects in the Youth Cen­ter.

“The book fos­ters the best hu­man qual­i­ties. If we want our youth to grow up ed­u­cated and highly spir­i­tual, we must bring them up in the spirit of love for the book, teach var­i­ous pro­fes­sions,” the Pres­i­dent stressed.

Dur­ing his visit, Shavkat Mirziy­oyev vis­ited other fa­cil­i­ties, and along with the suc­cesses achieved, he pointed to the short­com­ings, and gave in­struc­tions for their elim­i­na­tion. In gen­eral, the trip to Bukhara re­gion was another em­bod­i­ment of the con­stant at­ten­tion of the leader of our coun­try to every sphere and in­dus­try, the fate of every ci­ti­zen.
