Working With Children in Georgia

More than 20 years ago, World Vision opened an office in Georgia’s capital, Tbilisi, in response to the country’s dire need for economic assistance, especially among the country’s poorest and most vulnerable. Today, all of World Vision Georgia’s projects are built around three strategic goals: strengthen child welfare, enhance youth participation and support community development.

Children in Georgia live with tension between different ethnic and religious groups due to inequities in resource distribution and rights. The economic situation is improving, but many youth are still unemployed (34 per cent) and often living on the street. This makes them more susceptible to trafficking and other exploitation.
