Country profile of Georgia

Georgia is localed in the South of the Caucasus und has its Western border with the Black Sea. It has a very old Christian history and always was a transit country at the  Road of Silk, therefore also influenced by Islam. For a long time it was part of the Russian Confederation until it became independent in 1991.

Besides its culture Georgia offers a great diversity of landscapes: in the Southeast there is subtropical climate, in the North there are magnificent snowy mountains of Caucasus, in the East there is a big steppe, but also the well-known Georgian vine is growing there.

 

Voluntary Service in Georgia offers possibilities to learn to know a country on its way to democracy, having hospitable people and gastronomic richness. But the results of the passed wars still burden the development. Shortly after independence, Abchasia split up and waged war, in 2008 the same occurred in South Osetia. Many internally displaced persons (IDP) und a difficult economic development are only some of the problems that have to be solved.

However there is a strong civil society which many times have urged governmental change by non-violent protests (Revolution of Roses) and play a key role in society.

Our "Weltwärts"-positions are hosted by the following project partners (-> Project partners.
