PMC in Kyrgyzstan
PMC worked in Kyrgyzstan in 2012. Kyrgyzstan's population is about 5.8 million and its present annual growth rate would result in a doubling of the population in 62 years if left unchanged.
PMC provided a two-week Sabido Training in Kyrgyzstan for writers at MC2 Media, a small but popular local television production company, to create a TV radio serial drama that could address ethnic strife, equality, and corruption to help stabilize the country using PMC’s methodology for dramas. Общага (“The Dorm”) aired in March 2013 and received national attention for its promotion of harmonious ethnic diversity.

Kyrgyzstan is a country about half the size of Paraguay with a population of about 5.8 million and a growth rate of 1.05 percent. In April 2010, ethnic riots centered in the Kyrgyzstani city of Osh, killing hundreds of people, driving 80,000 people from their homes, and leading to serious questions regarding the stability of Kyrgyzstan. Kyrgyz gangs attacked Uzbeks, burning homes, shooting people, raping women, and looting businesses. While the exact number of people killed is disputed, hundreds were left dead, and it’s estimated that about 80,000 Uzbeks fled into neighboring Uzbekistan. The riots brought national attention to the fragile relationship between the Kyrgyzstani and Uzbek communities, who have a history of violence.
