The best of 2018 for our residents

As the year draws to a close, we're looking back at some of the highlights of this year and forwards to the challenges we'll face in 2019.  We'd like to share with you a few of our proudest moments, and thank you for the support which keeps us going.

  • Three of our families have been rehoused in a small village near Tbilisi, including Artur and Christine and their four children.  For the first time they will have the security of their own house.  They have no rent to pay and land to grow vegetables or keep a pig or chickens.
  • Luka won't have to work the streets at only 11 or 12 years old to support his family after his father died thanks to Mkurnali's help.
  • Two young men from Mkurnali are receiving a thorough training to become car mechanics thanks to a former Mkurnali resident, who has taken them on as apprentices, and a donor, who gave him the chance to expand his business.

Next year we are hoping to be able to reach more children and young people who are living or working on our streets.  Since the start of Giving Tuesday, the Global Giving community has donated $1,190 to our project, and we can add $156 in bonus funds.  This will get us off to a great start in 2019.  Thank you all!  

We'll let you know how we get on, and are always glad to hear from you if you have any questions or comments.
