In the Fall of 2017, Georgian Center will be launching a project to establish a forum – Telebridge between American and Georgian students that will be conducted twice a year on various topics. The goal of the Telebridge is to share experience and establish/maintain live links among students. The project will organize tours for interested parties to Georgia and share American experience with Georgian students on the ground. The Project partners will be selected based on a topic. The main partners are student associations in USA: George Mason University, Georgetown University, Virginia Tech, and George Washington University, and in Georgia: Iv. Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University, Ilia University, Caucasus Business School, Free University. Some academic organizations, lecturers and public figures also expressed interest in participating in this project.

The featured topics are:
• 1st project – social responsibility
• 2nd project ideas: technology, energy, environment and citizens’ role

Georgian Center is proud to be a sponsor of the special school in Bebnisi which provides education and comfort for over 18 children with special needs. Mother Ekaterina established this school in 2008 within the Mother’s Monastery of Bebnisi. The school quickly gained the ground due to lack of existence of such schools in the districts. This school not only provides education and emotional comfort for kids but it also supports parents and families who can now focus on day-to-day activities knowing their loved ones are in good hands during the day when they are at work.  

 

 

In December of 2015, Georgian Center raised money for helping most vulnerable in Georgia, and Co-founder of Georgian Center George Bitadze traveled to Georgia to identify rightful beneficiaries of this fund. The preference was given to Bebnisi School of special education for very simple reason; such schools are rare in Georgia and especially in rural areas where help is most needed.

 Georgian Center handed over the computer equipment and other Christmas presents to students with special needs. This is a first aid of such kind this school ever received and teachers are curtain that technology will enhance the curiosity and educational ego into their students, which itself significantly help them with self-esteem and further integration into community. 

We are planning to continue this program and ask for everyone’s generosity in support of this special school for the path of integration of most vulnerable into general society.


Your donation is greatly appreciated and it will be fully directed to this cause.
