Challenge

Pankisi Gorge of Georgia borders Chechnya, where the armed conflicts between the Chechen rebels and Russian armed forces had taken place and where various violent actions still continue. Developments in Chechnya has significantly affected the youth residing in Pankisi Gorge. Georgia is geographically close to Syria and Iraq, Georgia certain persons intensify their actions and try to use Islam for their political purposes involve young people in their activities.

Solution

We shall take actions aimed at showing the young people those resources and opportunities, through the use of which they will be able to ensure their decent position in the society and achieve success. For the first, we shall explain the youth that Islam is very far from violence and it has nothing common with cruel actions taken on behalf of Islam. Young people must be demanding towards the government and make central and local authorities accountable to efficiently respond to their problem.

Long-Term Impact

Awareness of youth on responsibilities of state towards its citizens, as well as on their rights and freedoms will increase. Awareness of youth on Georgia's integration into the EU and in general into the western space will increase. They will understand that religion in general and Islam in particular neither promotes nor supports the violence and the true faith does not mean aggression and violence against others.
