Georgia

Slepa mapa_Gruzie_vyrezCaritas Czech Republic started its development activities in Georgia in 2008. From the start of the Georgian program until 2015, CHCR projects were implemented mainly through local partner organizations.

In 2014, in light of the experience gained over the years, it was decided that setting up an office was a natural step in providing quality, timely and well-provided development assistance to the people of Georgia. The transition process was completed in 2015, when the CHČR branch in Georgia (under the name Caritas Czech Republic in Georgia, CHGR) was registered and a stable team of several employees was built. Since then, CHGR's professional capacities have been constantly developed, not only in the areas of health and social care, which are the 'flagships' of CHGR projects in the country, but also in agriculture, rural development and natural resource management. CHGR provides development assistance to the most vulnerable groups, such as children with severe disabilities and autism spectrum disorders, seeks to improve the health of the Georgian population, improves agriculture, strengthens community and rural development in mountain areas and seeks greater social inclusion and stronger civil society in Georgia . CHGR maintains a high degree of accountability to its many donors and partners and its activities are based on the principles of transparency and efficiency.

At present (as of January 2020), CHGR has its head office in Tbilisi and a regional office in Khulo (Adjara).
