10 years of KPR - Annual Report 2010

15th Anniversary of KPR

The KPR – Gardeners Club or in Slovak language, Klub pestovateľov rastlín, was initially established in 2000 in Slovakia in Europe, however a small number of plant enthusiastic have been trading seeds and plants in Slovakia since as early as 1998. From the beginning practically nobody knew about us, but in 2001 our first website was created. From that time, many plant lovers joined us and working together it was much easier for us to get rare plants from all around the world and even start to grow some species of pants, which were unknown in Slovakia.

Kyrgyz people: cross-border connections

Kyrgyz people are living in the Central Asia for ages. The world of the Kyrgyz people has been split into 2 main areas of interests – former Soviet Union and China. All Kyrgyz people historically used Arabic alphabet for writing. However, in former Soviet Union was introduced Latin alphabet in 1927 and it was replaced by Cyrillic alphabet from 1938, while people in China use Arabic alphabet till today.

Due to these historical reasons, Kyrgyz people are now divided into 2 groups. The bigger one (around 4 000 000 people) use Cyrillic alphabet and the smaller one from China (around 150 000 people) is using Arabic alphabet. People from these groups usually can not read the other script.

Today, internet is a medium which can easily get in touch people from different countries, but unfortunately, due to script barrier Kyrgyz people are still not joined.
