In 1994 World Vision opened an office in Georgia’s capital, Tbilisi, in response to the country’s dire need for economic assistance and intervention in the lives of Georgia’s poor and vulnerable. Today, all of World Vision Georgia’s projects are built around three strategic goals: Strengthen child welfare, Enhance youth participation, and community development. They build local capacity, contribute to the development of local and national policies, and are community-based and sustainable.
World Vision Georgia (WVG) works in four dedicated geographical regions in Georgia; Imereti, Kakheti, Samtskhe-Javakheti and now, Tbilisi. Consequently, World Vision is now present in most of the regions of Georgia, regions which are referred to as Area Development Programmes (ADPs).
The Overarching goal of WV Georgia is: Children in Georgia live in a healthy and active society, that is inclusive, tolerant and provides equal opportunities for all.
