Business Mixer on April 25, 2019

The April Business Mixer for the American Chamber of Commerce in Uzbekistan (AmCham) was hosted by the Tashkent International Health and Education Service and held on the campus of Tashkent International School. The Business Mixer was dedicated to Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR).
Matthew Kuschel, executive director of Tashkent International Clinic and John Gates, director of Tashkent International School (TIS), presented the CSR projects recently implemented by the clinic and school. The projects included a new skills-training program at Tashkent-area orphanages and a green project by the students of TIS.
Nodira Yadgarova, chair of the AmCham CSR committee and COO at the clinic, welcomed participants and introduced AmCham’s CSR project in the orphanages. The skills-training project is being led by Laziz Nigmanov, leader of a charity group and author of the project.
“Children who grow up in the orphanages lack rudimentary skills and knowledge to solve social living issues like socially-accepted behavior, domestic life, shopping, and making emergency calls,” Nigmanov said. “This project will help orphans prepare for an independent adult life.”
The project aims to equip exemplary facilities within the orphanages to train students for adult independence. It is planned to equip the rooms in six orphanages near Tashkent.
After the presentations, the business mixer continued with an entertainment program and snacks.
