SOS Georgia – Basic Education
SOS Children’s Villages became active in Georgia in the 1990s.
The break-up of the former Soviet Union and the ensuing political, social and economic changes including the conflicts with Abkhazia and South Ossetia, meant that the children of Georgia were in need of urgent assistance. The work of SOS Children’s Villages has expanded to include working with young people and families in the local communities. At present there are two SOS Children’s Villages in Georgia, four SOS Youth Facilities, one SOS Vocational Training Centre and four SOS Social Centres.
BEI is supporting SOS Georgia since March 2015.
The project aims to support basic education for vulnerable and marginalized groups who have higher risk of being excluded from education and failing graduation. This will be done through the provision of additional tutoring for children deprived of parental care and Civics through Documentaries Courses for lower secondary level students. The project will be implemented in the capital of Georgia-Tbilisi.
