NGO description

Founded in 1994, this organisation is a Charitable Foundation doing its best to serve the poverty-stricken in Georgia and promote charity and justice. It was created just after the break-up of the Soviet Union when Georgia gained independence. This foundation as actions everywhere in Georgia, mostly in Tbilisi and in big cities, helping poverty stricken people and homeless people to live a decent life. It distributes food, clothes, covers, ... They also have a strong program for youth, ensuring and facilitating their access to education and care. To do so, they have care center in big cities and summer programs for children in small villages.

This foundation is inspired by Christian Faith, more precisely from the Gospel, the Church’s social teaching. This non-profit has around 220 full-time workers and volunteers.

Volunteer's actions

The mission is usually located in Tbilisi, but you may ask the organisation to work somewhere else in Georgia if you prefer, they have actions everywhere.

Volunteers help with the following tasks:

  1. Cooking meals for distribution
  2. Distribution of food in the street
  3. Distribution of clothes to poverty-stricken people in a dedicated place in Tbilisi

During the year, volunteers work 4 days a week (Monday to Thursday), averaging 15 or 20 hours per week: 2 days with homeless people, and two days with poverty stricken people. A maximum of 3-4 volunteers are needed over the same period of time.
During summer, it is a bit different experience : volunteers stay a minimum of 10 days out of Tbilisi to help the team to manage summer camps into the distant villages.

OTHER information

Volunteers live in youth hostels, very abundant and welcoming in Tbilisi, where generally free Wifi is provided. This will enable them to meet many other awesome international volunteers or travelers.

As they live in the city, volunteers are able to get to know this amazing and developing city during their spare time. If they are really motivated, they can also use their time to help other local non-profit.
