The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) is implementing a project to increase the availability of educational social services for children with disabilities in Georgia. The project includes creating three care centers located in Gori, Tbilisi and Kareli; as well as coordinating advanced training for the staff of these centers.
During the course of the project, ADRA Georgia will overhaul the premises of the existing institutions by providing new equipment and furniture to provide the necessary conditions for the proper care of the students. The total number of students in these centers is currently as follows: Tbilisi - 41 students, ages 6 to 18 years, with disabilities and intellectual disabilities; Kareli - 15 students, ages 6-18 years old, with disabilities and physical disabilities; Gori – 40 students, ages 0-7 years, with limited development and physical abilities.
