Why World Vision is in Georgia

Communities in Georgia live with tension between different ethnic and religious groups due to perceived and actual inequities in resource distribution and rights. The economic situation is improving, but many youth are still unemployed (34%) and often living on the street. This makes them more susceptible to trafficking and other exploitation.

We never give up on people

With so much happening around the world, it can be hard to decide where your money can have the greatest impact. With your help through the Where Most Needed fund, we can respond quickly to urgent needs of the world's most vulnerable children and families. And, thanks to grant funds and donated products, your monthly gifts multiply 4 times in impact.
