Supporting Joint Efforts

Preparations are underway for a complete population and housing census, which will be conducted in Turkmenistan on December 17-27, 2022 using digital technologies. In close cooperation with the Government of Turkmenistan, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is making its contribution to the preparatory work. Supporting the joint efforts, the UNFPA has provided the State Committee on Statistics with census equipment, which will allow conducting a digital census for the first time in Turkmenistan. A population census is the most important source of information that provides the basis for the development of short-term and long-term socioeconomic development programmes of each country. For example, the population census results only produce such indicators as the level of education, age, family structure and housing conditions, and this makes it unique. In June 2015, the UN adopted a Resolution urging every country to conduct at least one census during the period from 2015–2024. Many of the indicators and sections for which data will be obtained indicate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

When summer passes the equator

The longest, summer, school holidays continue, which, having crossed the equator line, still involve schoolchildren from different regions of our country in a circle of exciting joint pastime. Shift after shift, all children’s recreation centres located at the foothills of Geokdere and in all velayats work in an active mode. Now the third recreation season is coming to an end. And upon its completion, after a few days, children’s health centres will again be filled with the hubbub of joyful voices of young vacationers. According to the established tradition, many of them, preferring to relax in children’s health centres in the company of peers and friends, spend their holidays there most if not all summer shifts. The children really like the conditions of comfortable living in buildings resembling ultra-modern hotels and all kinds of clubs and sections designed for different age groups of schoolchildren. And of course, the most popular and favourite among them are events of a competitive format, participation in which makes it possible to identify and sharpen the multifaceted potential of versatile talents and capabilities of children.

How to Prepare for Summer Holidays at the Children’s Recreation Centre

The main purpose of the Children’s Recreation Centre is communication, recreation and development. There, children are engaged in creativity: they sing, draw, dance, stage performances and broaden their outlook. Educators help develop a sense of beauty and a desire for joint creative work. They can also meet the needs of children in gaming activities. The centre hosts outdoor educational games, quizzes, sporting events (traditional morning exercises, swimming in the pool, hiking, among others). Parents who are willing to send their children to the centre to spend their vacation need not only to provide them with the necessary everyday things, but also to explain the rules of behaviour indoors and outdoors: at sea, on a hike and in an amusement park. In addition, they need to remind about the current rules of personal and public hygiene (not to forget to brush their teeth, wash their hands before eating, or at least dry their hands thoroughly with wet wipes, wash fruit and berries, drink bottled water, take a shower after the sea and others), inform about safety rules in the heat (wear a cap, light clothing, not to stay in the sun for a long time) and talk about caution when contacting with unfamiliar plants and insects.
