Work and Travel in Bishkek
WORK IN BISHKEK ALL YEAR ROUND
All year round in Bishkek volunteers can participate in educational programs and in the organisation of various cultural and sports events and amateur tours, as well as helping in hospitals, children centers and centers for the elderly and people with special needs.

Skiing in Bishkek - does it exist? Are there plenty of opportunities for people to get work in Bishkek in the winter? What kind of skills are needed at this time of year?

ATTITUDE TO FOREIGNERS WORKING IN BISHKEK
If you are a foreigner and work in Kyrgyzstan, as a rule, you will be treated with respect. However, to take a taxi or dine in the café, or, in general, to deal with local people is better if you have local friend. Adopt a local friend is easy - just agree to help him or her to practice one of popular languages that you speak - from the English to Chinese or Turkish.
