People in Need Latest Achievements 2017

 

Agriculture and Rural Development

 

• In December 2016, PIN signed a grant agreement with company GeoNatural that is engaged in honey market chains in Imereti and Racha. In April 2017, the company will receive an automatic honey extraction line and a machine for putting up honey in small plastic containers. The company will be collecting honey from small-scale apiarists in Tkibuli, Terjola and Ambrolauri. The honey will be then processed and packed for hotels and other consumers of honey in individual packs across Georgia. It is expected that the improvement and diversification of marketing options will stimulate honey production and income for small beekeepers.

 

• "ELKANA", PIN's partner in ENPARD-Cooperative Development project, organized a Farmers' Day for the project-supported greenhouse farmers. The aim of the event was to show the farmers many advantages of using the Mittleider (or Grow-Box) method of production of vegetables in the greenhouse.

 

• On March 13, PIN announced the second round of the grant call to support local initiatives in Kazbegi. 82 initial applications were received, 53 best ideas are continuing the competition.

 

• Traktor platform (www.traktor.co) elaborated by the TVET project contractor "Mosavali", the first mobile and online app for Georgian farmers was officially launched on 15th of February 2017.

 

Traktor provides farmers with following services:


1. Digital Crop Calendar: a quick overview of key practices per crop
2. Power Tips: Database of distance learning content
3. Farm Help: free tailored advice from agronomists to veterinarians
4. Online shop: Easy access to the best input supplies from top farmers service centers throughout the country

 

Current Project: Enhancing Small Farmers' Cooperation and Productivity in Imereti and Racha Regions (ENPARD); Local Action Group Kazbegi (ENPARD-Pilot Rural Development Measures); Improving Vocational Education for the Agribusiness in Georgia.


Civil Society and Local Governance

 

• As a follow up of the Municipal Strategy of Social Inclusion and its Action Plan 2017, 17 projects of the CSOs and local authorities were supported by grants. The project will contribute to the improved social services in the municipalities of Tkibuli, Khoni, Gori and Zugdidi and target IDPs, elderly, people with disabilities, youth, children and other vulnerable groups.

 

• On March 14 round-table discussion and presentation of the "Experts Study and Participatory Needs Assessment on Social Services" was organized in Tbilisi. Representatives of parliament of Georgia, central and local authorities, the government of Abkhazia, international and local organizations, and social service providers had an opportunity to discuss the challenges in the social service provision and possible ways of their solution.

 

Current Project: Enhancing the Participation of Regional CSOs in Policy Dialogue on Social Inclusion in Georgia.


Social Support and Inclusion

 

• In 2016, PIN's social inclusion project resulted in the development of the concept for introducing school social work in the Georgian reality. This year, based on the given concept and in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Science, PIN and the project partner Georgian Association of Social Workers (GASW) will pilot the service in two public schools of Tbilisi. The service of psycho-social support, which will be delivered by social work specialists, will facilitate inclusion of students with disabilities and special educational needs in school space and strengthen their involvement in formal and non-formal education.
