PRESS RELEASE

PEACE CORPS’ DREAM TEAM TO COMPETE AT THE 1ST WORLD NOMAD GAMES IN KYRGYZSTAN

9/9/2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Cholpon-Ata, Kyrgyzstan, September 9, 2014 – A team of five Peace Corps Volunteers, currently serving in the Kyrgyz Republic, are competing at the 1st World Nomad Games currently taking place on the northern shore of the beautiful alpine lake of Issyk-Kul.

Peace Corps Kyrgyz Republic’s Team represents the United States and includes Maryn Lewallen, Edward Yoo, David Ramras, Gus Hulin, and Sean Heyneman and Peace Corps. They join more than 350 athletes competing from countries, including Azerbaijan, Austria, Afghanistan, Belarus, Brazil, Germany, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Mongolia Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Sweden, South Korea, Russia, Hungary and South Africa. 

The Peace Corps Team reflects the scope of programs in the Kyrgyz Republic. Maryn and Edward work in the Health Education program, Gus and David work with the Sustainable Community Development program, and Sean is an English Teacher. By participating in the 1st World Nomad Games, each of these Peace Corps Volunteers has found a unique way to work towards Peace Corps’ Third Goal, learning and sharing Kyrgyz Culture with their communities in the United States. The team will compete exclusively in Kyrgyz language, demonstrating not only their commitment to learning Kyrgyz culture and language, but also their capacity to work as partners in their communities.

This unique opportunity showcases Peace Corps Volunteers commitment to and partnership with the people and communities of the Kyrgyz Republic. Peace Corps Kyrgyz Republic Country Director Tammie Harris also participated in the Opening Ceremony of the “Toguz Korool” Tournament, and was instrumental in supporting our team at the competition.

The 1st World Nomad Games aims to promote regional integration, friendship and cooperation by promoting commonality of the nomadic culture of the peoples of the world. The Games include competitions like “Kok Boru,” a version of polo played with a goat carcass popular in Central Asia; various wrestling competitions such as “Kyrgyz Quresh,” “Alysh,” and “Oodarysh;” several horse racing events such as “At-chabysh,” “Jorgo-salysh,” “Kunain chabysh;” and the Kyrgyz traditional game of chasing girls on horseback , “Kiz-Kuumai.” The Peace Corps team will be competing in the “Toguz Korgool” tournament, a Kyrgyz game similar to checkers.

The 1st World Nomad Games will continue throughout the week, culminating in final competitions on Saturday and Sunday, September 13th and 14th, 2014. Competition winners will be eligible for prize money, which, if the Peace Corps Team wins, will be contributed to projects in their communities. More information about the 1st World Nomad Games is available on their website, http://www.worldnomadgames.com

Twenty-second group of U.S. Peace Corps Volunteers in the Kyrgyz Republic sworn-in June 19

With the completion of their training, 55 Peace Corps trainees were sworn-in Thursday, June 19at a ceremony at the Kyrgyz National Opera and Ballet Theater named after A. Maldybaev.  The Honorable Pamela L. Spratlen, Ambassador of the United States of America, administered the oath of office to this, the 22nd group of Peace Corps Volunteers to serve in the Kyrgyz Republic.

The ceremony was attended by the Volunteers’ local counterparts, their host families, partners from the Ministry of Health, Peace Corps staff, U.S. Embassy staff, and former Volunteers who have served in this country.  After taking the oath, the new Volunteers moved to work sites in the Talas, Chui, Naryn, Issyk-Kul, Osh and Jalalabad oblasts. 

Twenty-nine of these Peace Corps Volunteers will work as English language educators and trainers, 15 will work as health workers and trainers, and 11 will work as community and organizational development workers in six oblasts of the Kyrgyz Republic.

This 22nd group of Volunteers trained for seven and half weeks in Issyk-Ata Rayon of Chui oblast.  They received intensive language training in Kyrgyz or Russian, depending on the dominant language in the community where they have been assigned.  They also learned about the local culture and traditions, and how to stay safe and healthy. 

Peace Corps Volunteers provide technical assistance in three program areas: English language instruction, healthcare education, and business skills development.  Volunteers live and work in villages and cities for two years.  In addition to their regular work, Volunteers organize educational camps for children, and provide training on critical thinking, life skills and healthy lifestyles among population.  They also share American culture with their communities, and share Kyrgyzstani culture with their friends and families in the United States.
