Many of us remember the participation of the “Friends of Jibi” volunteer club at the World Nomadic Games, and how they told the world about the history of Jibi’s little boy through a theatrical piece (www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAOyZvKOMzo). These were the students from the pilot schools of Talas and Kemin districts who participated in the RDF educational camps (www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSvgzSxcXoM).
Now we can recite a brave story of the kids of kindergarten No. 165 of Bishkek who joined the conservation of the leopard! They presented the Friends of Jibi volunteer club’s theatrical piece at Nooruz festival by emulating Jibi’s older friends. We now remember their sincere and excited faces when they were portraying a wolf, a bear, a fox, and the main character of the story – snow leopard Jibi. As a token of gratitude, RDF, in turn, donated books about the snow leopards, printed publications from the RDF’s Traditional Knowledge Series, some gifts and sweets to the kindergarten. The National Commission of the Kyrgyz Republic for UNESCO also made a gift of books for preschool institutions.
Many thanks to the pupils of the kindergarten №165 for joining the Friends of Jibi team in the conservation of the snow leopard! We would also like to express our deep gratitude to the leadership and the educators of Methodist kindergarten Gulshachan Janybaeva for the excellent work with the younger generation of our country.
