Tajikistan Travel and Tourism

Tajikistan Flag

Tajikistan , officially the Republic of Tajikistan , is a mountainous landlocked country in Central Asia. Afghanistan borders to the south, Uzbekistan to the west, Kyrgyzstan to the north, and People's Republic of China to the east. Tajikistan also lies adjacent to Pakistan but is separated by the narrow Wakhan Corridor. Most of Tajikistan's population belongs to the Tajik ethnic group, who share culture and history with the Iranian peoples and speak the Persian language . Once part of the Samanid Empire, Tajikistan became a constituent republic of the Soviet Union in the 20th century, known as the Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic . After independence, Tajikistan suffered from a devastating civil war which lasted from 1992 to 1997. Since the end of the war, newly-established political stability and foreign aid have allowed the country's economy to grow. Trade in commodities such as cotton and aluminium wire has contributed greatly to this steady improvement. In Tajikistan about 20% of the population live on less than US$1.25 per day.

Pilot project provides a community sentencing alternative for young offenders - Dushanbe
Pilot project provides a community sentencing alternative for young offenders Along in a shabby suburb of Tajikistan capital, Dushanbe. There is nothing remarkable about this neighbourhood. The low-rise urban landscape is a legacy of the Soviet era. As pull up we face the drab, brown facade of a large school. It's only when entering a side wing of the building that it becomes clear something extraordinary is taking place. Inside, the building comes alive. The rooms burst with colour, artwork adorns the walls, and everywhere it is orderly and clean. This is the home of the Firdavsi Project, a pilot project that provides a community-sentencing alternative for young offenders. “No child is born a criminal,” says UNICEF Representative in Tajikistan Yukie Mokuo. “We are demonstrating t...

The Background of Tajikistan - Dushanbe
The Background of Tajikistan Half of Tajikistan's population is under 18 years of age; two thirds live in rural areas. Economic growth averaging 8 per cent annually has reduced poverty over the past five years, and social reform has become a national priority. Issues facing children in Tajikistan Poverty has forced a million Tajiks to work abroad. Such migration has financial benefits for workers' families, but also social costs, leading to abandonment or institutionalization of children; some are forced into prostitution. More than 80 per cent of Tajikistan's 11,000 institutionalized children are not orphans. Mortality rates for infants (92 per 1,000) and children under five (118 per 1,000) are disturbing. Inadequate pre- and postnatal ...

Donor alerts and field reports of Tajikistan - Dushanbe
Donor alerts and field reports of Tajikistan Development efforts aimed at improving the lives of children and women in Tajikistan have suffered setbacks due to natural disasters and a cholera outbreak that hit different parts of the country in June and July. Several districts in northern and southern Tajikistan have suffered heavy floods and mud flows causing destruction of houses, school buildings, roads and other infrastructures. Hundreds of people have also been displaced from their homes and are now living in camps. The cholera outbreak could exacerbate the fragile health situation of children in the affected areas. UNICEF therefore urgently requires at least US $800,000 in order to respond to the needs of children and women in disaster-affected areas. To ...
