KICB together with its partners planted more than 14 000 seedlings / 06.04.2021

On April 6, 2021, the “Green Foundation”, established by the initiative of the Kyrgyz Investment and Credit Bank with the support of International Public Fund “Roza Otunbaeva’s Initiatives”, the “Aga Khan Development Organization” and “Kumtor Operating Company”, planted trees and shrubs in a new kindergarten 11 in the center of Bishkek.

The Bank and its partners annually initiate the planting of more than a thousand new seedlings in order to maintain the microclimate in schools and kindergartens. The green plants generate oxygen and regulate the air temperature, removing toxins and providing a favorable microclimate for the capital.

“The first tree planting within the framework of the Green Foundation project took place in 2012 and up to date, thanks to our joint efforts, we have planted more than 14 000 seedlings. The project is designed to protect the environment and create favorable conditions for living in the Republic. It’s not by accident that our tree planting initiative is taking place in preschool and school institutions. From childhood, we instill the younger generation ecological values, respect of nature through planting and taking care of the trees and green plants. Thousands of trees and shrubs planted within the framework of the project have been growing for many years and give a clean air to the city, its residents, and first of all, to our children”: said Bektur Aliev, Chief Executive Officer of KICB CJSC.

KICB pays special attention to environmental projects. The goal of the Green Foundation project is to make Kyrgyzstan greener and more ecological, to attract the public to respect nature and to leave a green city for future generations.

Except the main grant for gardening, KICB also made a gift to the kindergarten, providing the computer equipment.
