    The success story of a single parent

    26 March, 2021

    Marina is a young girl who lives in the partner community of the CSG Center with her two young children and her husband. Marina's main activity was raising children and family activities, but she also had a number of other skills and, if supported, could realize her potential. The support and assistance of the CSG Center proved crucial and important for Marina and her family.

    Marina has always been attracted to and interested in knitting, embroidery and handicrafts. However, he could not imagine that his further activities would be related to his favorite job. In the process of working with Marina's family, it became clear that she was particularly interested in the art of felt processing, and it was decided to develop an activity in this direction, which would later become a source of small income for her. After the involvement of the Kakheti Regional Development Center, his life changed completely. With the help of the organization, Marina underwent professional training, studied felt processing techniques and started making accessories and souvenirs from felt. In order to start her own business, the Marina Center provided all the necessary materials for the production of items, after which the Center started to sell handicrafts. Today Marina has her own business, has a small income and is an independent and realized woman.

    "The organization suddenly appeared in my life and everything changed. It gave me the opportunity to learn and do what I have always liked and most importantly to make this a source of income for me. "Once I started working on felt and selling it, I became more confident." Notes Marina. "I, as a mother, am happy to have the opportunity to ensure the well-being of my children with my own income. With the help of the CSG Center, a number of positive changes have taken place in my and my children's lives."

    The success story of a single parent

    25 March, 2021

    Salome is a single parent living in the CSG Center partner community who has been caring for her three young children completely alone for years. Meeting with the CSG program radically changed the lives of Salome and her girls. Although Salome is a caring and loving parent, she could not afford to care for her children properly and meet their basic needs due to living conditions and social hardship. Due to her small income, Salome found it difficult to feed her children, and in many cases the children had to stay hungry.

    He also did not have enough firewood to heat his house in the winter and was able to move through the winter in the hope of his neighbors. Abandoned by her husband, Salome spent several years with her children in one of the settlements, in an apartment rented by a relative, where there was no furniture, no heat, and no other important conditions for the development of the children. Salome tried to take care of the children in the hope of social assistance. He did not have a supportive circle and could hardly take on the responsibilities imposed on him. Salome's family was informed about the CSG program, after which they were involved in family support services and the family was provided with basic necessities. However, after meeting with Salome, it became clear that there was a high risk in the family that the children would be transferred to state care due to unsuitable environmental conditions. That is why the CSG program planned complex work with Salome. Salome got involved in a family support model and started working intensively with a family supporter to strengthen her. In the first stage, his living conditions were adjusted. With the help of the municipal social service, a safe and secure apartment was rented in the village where the lives and health of the children were not endangered. In addition active work was planned in terms of professional development of the young mother.

    A job was found and Salome was hired. He was actively involved in the work process and in addition to being employed, he also started an active social life. It can be said that Salome, who used to have difficulty caring for her own children and looked to the future with fear, is now an independent and strong woman who, without any help, manages to take full care of her children independently, lives in a safe and secure environment and leads an active social life.

    The first steps to Salome's success

    Elizabeth's story

    The Donchenko family, with five children, lives in Kurdglauri village. They are representatives of the Roma community. For several months now, the family has been included in the joint project of "SOS Children's Village of Georgia" and the Kakheti Regional Development Center—"Improved Child Protection Systems in Guria and Kakheti." During the selection process, the project places special emphasis on vulnerable groups in society, including national minorities. The project includes activities aimed at supporting the education, development, and full integration of these groups into society. This contributes to reducing public stigma and discrimination, breaking stereotypes, and promoting the well-being of children and adolescents.

    I would like to tell you about Elizaveta Donchenko. Fifteen-year-old Elizaveta studies at Kurdglauri public school. She is a loving, active, and cheerful girl. According to her parents and teachers, Elizaveta is highly motivated toward learning and development. She is a good student and aims to get a good education in the future. She wants to be educated to protect the rights of her community and help other Roma to develop and get an education. Elizaveta and her family always eagerly participate in the various educational activities offered within the project.

    Last month, Elizaveta received an interesting offer from Project. Within the framework of the partnership between the Kakheti Regional Development Center and the Civil Society Development Center (CSDC), with the support of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the program "Prevention of the COVID-19 Pandemic by Promoting Hygiene Among Vulnerable Adolescents" is being implemented. The goal of the program is to teach safe hygiene practices and raise awareness among 12-17-year-olds, particularly targeting homeless, neglected, and out-of-school adolescents.

    Within this project, 12 adolescents were selected in Kakheti and retrained to continue working with their peers as equal educators. The Kakheti Regional Development Center extended the offer to families in the family strengthening project, including Elizaveta's. The Donchenko family met this initiative with great interest and joy. Elizaveta immediately entered the competition and was selected among the 12 teenagers. This was her first time participating in such an initiative. She particularly highlights the three-day training conducted as part of the project, held in Daba Tsem, as one of her most important and first independent experiences.

    The retrained adolescents will actively continue to work on the annual project. This is an extraordinary opportunity, especially for groups representing national minorities, as it provides a chance for greater development, education, and integration into society, positively impacting the personal growth of adolescents.

    I can confidently say that this was an unprecedented case where a young person from the Roma community fully participated in an educational field trip and will continue their educational activities with Georgian and non-Georgian peers. Elizaveta shares, "I am proud because my daughter, like a Georgian child, will conduct trainings for other children. She will gain valuable knowledge, which will be very useful in the future," says Nina Donchenko.

    Veriko Murvelashvili

    Meet Veriko Murvelashvili, a participant in the project "Improved Child Protection System in Guria and Kakheti." Veriko joined the employment and professional planning service in January 2022. She is a 26-year-old woman living in Shalauri village with her husband, parents, and six children.
    The Murvelashvili family has been engaged in various agricultural activities over the years. They had a bakery but struggled to expand their business, resulting in a meager income for their large family.
    With the financial support of the project, the family received a new bakery, a dough kneading machine, a power regulator, various storage rooms, and necessary equipment. They successfully utilized the provided resources to increase their income.
    Veriko notes, "We didn't believe that such miracles happen, that complete strangers can push you to start a new life, hold your hand, and lead you to real changes. Now there is a long way ahead, new plans, and I think good news is starting now."
    The project is implemented with the financial support of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and the Hermann Gmeiner German Foundation.

    Nana Gagnidze

    Nana Gagnidze is a 41-year-old woman living with her children in Vardisubani village. She is socially vulnerable, with her social assistance amounting to 200 GEL. Nana is a professional stylist with over five years of work experience, having worked in different salons.

    Nana recalls, "I worked for years on a meager income. It was often difficult for me to pay for the rent of the salon as well as for the inventory. When I managed for a while, I saved bit by bit to buy inventory. I thought, today I am here, but what will I do tomorrow? Do I need to have my own place?"

    These thoughts led Nana to the realization that using her own equipment was essential. However, over time, the equipment became old and broke down. "When the equipment is not of the quality it should be, you often wonder, what can I offer to my clients? Does anyone want to dry their hair with a hairdryer wrapped in broken duct tape? Maybe that's why I couldn't move forward," she says.

    During this challenging period, the Kakheti Regional Center and SOS Children's Village—through Asmati, Mari, and Nino—began working with Nana. They gave her the opportunity to rediscover her strength and become a purposeful, determined, and active woman.

    "Participation in the project turned out to be very interesting. These people truly recognized the needs I was experiencing at that time. I am very proud to have updated equipment and inventory. Most importantly, I now have a smiling face, which I noticed in the new hanging mirror, one of the gifts I received from this project," Nana shares.

    Meet Oksana Egorova, a participant in the "Improved Child Protection System in Guria and Kakheti" project. Oksana joined the employment and professional planning service on February 24, 2023. Oksana is of Ukrainian origin. Currently, she is a housewife, living with her husband and four children, including a child with a disability.

    Oksana's family has been involved in beekeeping for years, but only a few bee colonies survived due to diseases. Oksana wanted to engage in an activity that would contribute to the economic strengthening of her family while allowing her to care for her children. She decided to continue the old family business. Through the project, she completed a short course in beekeeping and received bee colonies with hives. This activity will help secure the family's financial future.

    Oksana notes, "At a new stage of my life, I am starting the work that I liked so much and always wanted to continue—the family's traditional activities."

    The project is implemented with the financial support of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and the Hermann Gmeiner German Foundation.
