    Personal Thank You

    We'll call you! Or (if that creeps you out) write to you to say thanks and see if you have any more questions. We love telling stories of Ratbu, the kids, and the room, and we'd love to share that with you in a more personalized way.

    Thank You Card from Kyrgyzstan

    Receive a handwritten, heartfelt letter from a Kyrgyz student. Remember when you got that penpal in 3rd grade from Michigan or Iowa? Even THAT was exciting! But these pen pals are way better since they speak a different language, live in a different country, and probably know how to milk a cow and cook a sheep. (Don't worry! We'll send a translation too!)

    All that and a bag of rice

    Anyone who's been to Kyrgyzstan will tell you that plov just isn't the same without the famous Uzgen rice grown in the southern pat of the country. At this level, we'll send you Ratbu's recipe and the rice you need to really make it taste like it would in Kyrgyzstan.
