1). „Fairtogether in Georgia: მშვიდობიანი თანამშრომლობისთვის”
In 2021 Act for transformation together with the partners Association Atinati and act for transformation – Caucasus Office implement the project "Fairtogether in Georgia: მშვიდობიანი თანამშრომლობისთვის” in Zugdidi municipality.
Our joint goal is to contribute to violence prevention and peace education in schools and youth clubs in Zugdidi municipality as well as to promote dialogue between different countries and regions. Together with our active partners we promote peace-education as topic for formal and non-formal education in Georgia.
Our understanding of peace-education:
Peace education aims to strengthen civil conflict management and to equip young people with competencies to solve problems. In concrete, peace education means first informing about methods of non-violent conflict resolution, about civil society engagement, about preventing violence, about strengthening human rights, about promoting justice, about mediation and reconciliation work.
Activities of the project:
In a training of trainers 17 youth workers and youth activists are trained as “Fairtogether trainers” by international trainer team from Ukraine, Germany and Georgia. The new trainers offer Workshops in partner schools in Zugdidi municipality and a Fairtogether Summer Camp for youth. Together with Radio Atinati youth create 6 radio programs, which are broadcasted in Samegrelo and Abkhazia region. In a joint online conference Trainers, NGOs from Germany, Georgia and Ukraine and representatives of the educational ministries share experience about concepts of peace-education and “peace schools”.
The project is funded by German Federal Foreign Office in the framework of the program "Expanding Cooperation with Civil Society in the Eastern Partnership Countries and Russia" and co – financed by Quäker-Hilfe e.V.
