Novi Ritm is continuously working on developing a broad network of organizations and groups that we collaborate with. From long-term partnerships with organizations giving us grants, to short term collaborators for certain events – these are collaborations that we deeply value. Please see below for a short presentation of the more significant collaborations.
We also thank our other collaborators- the individuals and organizations that have supported with speeches, shorter trainings or seminars, even though they are not mentioned by name. Novi Ritm accepts this support as the way of exchanging knowledge and experience, and we hope that this support and contact between various organizations will continue, in order to share skills and experience.
Centralasiengrupperna, (Central Asia Groups- CAG) – Sweden
CAG has been a close supporter of Novi Ritm since the start of the organization. CAG has been a particularly active partner in establishing Our House, and support Novi Ritm in various fields, e.g. financially and with capacity building within their common thematic areas. CAG and NR has also co-organized various exchange projects, training courses and activist residencies in Kyrgyzstan, Sweden, Tajikistan and Turkey.

UN Women – Osh
For Novi Ritm, women’s rights and the situation for girls and women in Kyrgyzstan are some of the key issues. UN Women is therefore a valuable contact and supporter. One example was the support in terms of funding and guest speakers during the Novi Ritm event “Youth UNiTE” (a part of the UN 16 day campaign “UNiTE to End Violence Against Women”) in December 2014. More info about UN Women here.
During summer in 2015 Novi Ritm got in contact with Peace Corps and one outcome is the possibility to join various trainings. One example is various trainings in HIV/AIDS conducted to which we so far have sent two volunteers, who are afterwards spreading the gained knowledge through seminars and trainings.

Generations for Peace
During the spring 2015 Novi Ritm begun a cooperation with Generations For Peace, working with conflict management and school children in Osh. We have also had trainings and seminars on conflict transformation at Our House.
