Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

First of all,I would like to tell about our Valley, which is called as 'Golden Valley'. Actually it's name is 'Fergana Valley'. It consists of 3 regions: Fergana, Andijan and Namangan. These three regions are very accommodative for agriculture and for cotton planting. The cotton is the main crop in the area and simbolically called as 'White Gold', it gives to valley the name 'Golden Valley'. There is another version of this opinion: Because of many people say that our Valley is paradisiacally beautiful it's praised as 'Golden Valley'. Our school is situated in the center of Asaka city in 'Cho'ntak' area. 'Cho'ntak' is translated into English as a 'Pocket'. This strange name was given to this area because from the hills it looks like a delve. if to tell about Asaka city, there are many things what can be acossiated with the name of Asaka city.
