Georgia

The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation has been working in Georgia since 2002. In 2003 we opened an office in Tbilisi. We are cooperating with 11 organisations, of which four are working in the breakaway region of Abkhazia and one in South Ossetia.

Our partner organisations work to facilitate dialogue between women from opposite sides of the border conflicts. Several organisations support women who have been subjected to violence. Other important issues for the organisations include women’s leadership, sexual and reproductive health and rights, and internally displaced persons (IDPs). They also work with advocacy to influence decision-makers, for example by writing shadow reports and sitting as advisors in a number of working groups for the government.
