Ala Kachuu-Kyrgyz


[Kyz = girl;   Korgon = shelter or place to seek protection]

Dedicated to understanding Kyz Ala Kachuu, preventing non-consensual marriage,
and providing assistance to women who are kidnapped for marriage against their will.

by supporting the institutes of human rights in particular the protection of women's rights".

her consent, is a violation of Kyrgyz criminal law, Islamic Sharia law, Kyrgyz tradition (adat),
and of her fundamental human rights of security, freedom and equality.
