Cultural Heritage Preservation Work in Afghanistan and Central Asia

In 2019–20 we completed the eighth year of cultural heritage preservation projects in Afghanistan and carried out the second year of our heritage training initiative in the post-Soviet republics of Central Asia. The three cultural heritage grants in Afghanistan are funded by the US Department of State and the US Embassy in Kabul. The Central Asian Heritage Project is based in Uzbekistan and supported by the US Embassy Tashkent.
