Four EU-supported projects that have recently come to an end in Georgia have successfully demonstrated solutions to the employment challenges faced by people with disabilities and people living in remote areas, as well as solutions for developing agro- and family businesses in the country.
This is the conclusion that was reached on 15 March at the “Everyone is employable” event, organised by the EU Delegation to Georgia in the country’s capital, Tbilisi. The event served as a platform to present the results and achievements of the four EU-supported projects.
Speaking at the event, Janos Herman, Ambassador of the EU Delegation to Georgia, stated: “These projects have already had a strong and positive impact for many Georgian citizens. They prove that with the right approach and resources everyone can be employed.”
The four projects were primarily financed by the EU, but implemented by different partners across the country. Besides presenting new models of employment support, the projects helped find employment for 100 jobseekers, supported over 240 small businesses and provided training for over 3000 people. These projects focused on providing equal opportunities for people with disabilities, supporting vocational education for those working in the agricultural sector or in remote regions of the country and launching an employment-oriented education and development system in the Adjara region.
