Guria is one of the poorest mountainous regions in Western Georgia, with one of the lowest GDPs per capita in Georgia. Guria is famous for tea plantations (developed in the Soviet era), and an outstanding sense of humor of the locals! 

Over the years, our local partner, the Charte.ge team, has visited all three municipalities of Guria - Lanchkhuti, Ozurgeti and Chokhatauri. A total of 164 high school students who have been deemed socially vulnerable by Social Services have been selected as our beneficiaries with the help of their local school districts.

The students are now equipped with laptops, Internet access, and online courses. Our partner Airnet, a local Wifi operator, covered the end-user device installation costs while our online donors sponsor the monthly Internet fees.

After we distributed the laptops, our team organized fun, interactive training sessions for our beneficiaries on Media Literacy, Online Education and Financial Education. Through experiments, discussions and Q&A sessions, our beneficiaries learned how to tell apart fake news, save money, learn online and more.
