Georgia

Children in Georgia live with the tension between different ethnic and religious groups due to inequities in resource distribution and rights. The economic situation is improving, but 25 per cent of youth are still unemployed and often living on the street. This makes them more susceptible to trafficking and other exploitation.

World Vision Georgia

In 1996, World Vision opened an office in Georgia's capital, Tbilisi, in response to the country's dire need for economic assistance and intervention in the lives of Georgia's poor and vulnerable. Today, all of World Vision Georgia's projects are built around three strategic goals that build local capacity, contribute to the development of local and national policies, and are community-based and sustainable.

  • Strengthen child welfare
  • Enhance youth participation
  • Community development

World Vision is one of the leading children's rights non-governmental organizations in Georgia. For more than 25 years in the country, the organization has been actively engaged in the strengthening of the child welfare system and creating a healthy and active society for children that is inclusive, tolerant and provides equal opportunities for all. The organization's long-term presence in the country has successfully positioned it as a reliable development partner for national and local governments, civil society organizations and other stakeholders.

World Vision recognizes the sustainable approach whereby the improvement of a child's well-being is inextricably linked to the improvement of that child's family, education facilities and the overall communities' ability to provide for the child.

We work in four dedicated geographical regions in Georgia: Imereti, Kakheti, Samtskhe-Javakheti and Tbilisi.

Invest in stronger communities

When you give where most needed, you’ll help provide things like healthcare, safety, food, clean water and more to vulnerable children and families around the world. It’s a powerful way to help fight poverty and hunger, and give hope to those in need.
