Help Save Children in Georgia
Since the breakup of the Soviet Union, Georgia has seen the collapse of basic social services, the loss of jobs, rampant corruption, ineffective government, armed conflict and displacement of citizens. As a result, children are suffering from depression, phobias, behavioral problems, learning disorders and more. Many grow up isolated from the stabilizing influence of tradition and strong communities.

Conflict, displacement and isolation are inflicting severe psychological wounds on children in Georgia. They desperately need your help..*
- 4% of school-age children are out of school
- 12 out of 1000 children die before their 5th birthday

Our Work for Children in Georgia
Save the Children is one of the leading nongovernmental organizations working to help the country's most vulnerable populations. Focusing on health, education and the needs of women, children and adolescents, our dynamic and innovative programs work toward sustainable results, allowing beneficiaries to independently continue their own development.
Looking forward, Save the Children plans to build on our success in Georgia by enhancing our programs in social welfare and protection, expanding our health and education programs to cover conflict zones in South Ossetia and Abkhazia and working closely with the Georgian government to help reform the country and create a viable society.
