ChildFund Deutschland in Georgia
The Republic of Georgia, independent since 1991 since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, has gone through a period of great upheaval. The country has been beset by mismanagement, corruption, civil conflict and displacement, and a range of social problems. Since the democratic revolution of 2003, Georgia has been on a successful course of reform. However, the economy has been slow to revitalize, and poverty and unemployment remain widespread today.
