A modernized youth infrastructure in Guria, Georgia
This initiative was supported by The New Democracy Fund through the New Cooperation Fund.
About the project
This project addresses underinvested youth infrastructure in the city of Guria, which is one of the most disadvantaged regions of Georgia. It looks specifically at the youth infrastructure accessibility and availability in the context of the Covid pandemic, aiming at providing equal chances for, primarily but not only, young persons with disabilities (PwD) and fewer opportunities. The project’s key activities are a supervisory program mapping local resources and needs in the region, a mentorship program aimed at supporting local partners in the development of youth projects, and a grant scheme for youth infrastructure implementation.
