Bactria was founded by ACTED, a French non-governmental organization, in 2001 to address issues of access to culture,
information and education in Tajikistan and today is the center of the cultural life of Central Asia.
In collaboration with government, donors, civil society, the business community, artists and the public,
Bactria offers a range of educational activities, including vocational training, language courses and courses on contemporary art, as well as cultural events covering literature, music, visual and performing arts.
Currently, Bactria works through an office in the city of Dushanbe of a representative / coordinator in the city of Khujand and a language school in the city of Murghab.
The British Embassy in Tajikistan maintains and develops relations between the UK and the Republic of Tajikistan. Our work covers a range of issues including political and economic reform.
We co-ordinate the bilateral relationship between the UK and Tajikistan, and provide consular assistance to British and unrepresented Commonwealth nationals. We deal with a wide range of political, consular, commercial, security, defence and economic issues which are of interest to the United Kingdom and Tajikistan.
The embassy works closely with the Department for International Development (DFID), which is the part of the UK government that manages Britain’s aid to developing countries, including Tajikistan, and works to alleviate extreme poverty
