“Injicio” is a Latin word and means some kind of challenge. Initiation is a chemical process when a chain reaction begins with external influence.

In order not to confuse you, this is a manifestation of the initiative.

We talk about young people and this is our intention - active young people take initiatives.

The Women Fund “Sukhumi” operates in 10 municipalities (Samtredia, Terjola, Bagdati, Vani, Tkibuli, Senaki, Zugdidi, Tsalenjikha, Chokhatauri, Kobuleti). Previously, youth clubs were formed in separate schools in the city / village, meetings were held. Now municipalities are creating Youth Empowerment Centers, which bring together representatives of different schools.

During the 6-month training course, participants get acquainted with various topics, with the technique of conducting meetings. And from the first month they begin to conduct activities in their schools. After completing the full course, the most active ones are given the title of trainer.

It is difficult to single out any school, the initiated events are held everywhere. Children practically implement what they have learned, and they really like it.

In the second half of June, two more women with children were placed at the Rehabilitation Center of the Women Fund "Sukhumi" on the recommendation of one of the Women Support Centers. There were 7 beneficiaries. Lawyer, psychologist, social worker have an important role in the process of rehabilitation. They work in a complex manner. The work of the teacher is of particular importance, who tries to make the days spent in the center interesting for the children.

When children are having fun, mothers feel safe. They are happy and it is felt in their words:

- Many thanks to everyone for the warmth, comfort, delicious food for the smiles of our children, for the strength you give us...

Marina Stepanenko was going to visit Kutaisi this spring. A friend invited and she wanted to see this city for a long time.

She appeared there earlier than expected. Because of the war in Ukraine. On March 8, together with the children, she flew in from Poland.

Her Facebook post:

"Georgia. Warm, kind, comfortable. At the exit from the airport, the contacts of those arriving from Ukraine are recorded, accommodation options and a free lunch is offered. They provide a phone number for emergency calls. We came here with children. We arrived from Krakow.

Representatives of the Women Fund "Sukhumi" came to visit her during the first days of her arrival. They shared her worry about her family, husband and parents, who remained in Kyiv. They brought food, toys, clothes. Then they found out that she was a psychologist and realized that she could help the women from Ukraine best of all.

122 - our contact base

There is a good news: Kutaisi Municipality has approved our proposal for free travel on public transport for Ukrainians. Food vouchers are also issued in the amount of 100 GEL per person, and they still help with accommodation cost.

122 people - this is our contact base. These refugees from Ukraine are now in Georgia and contact us.

In June, assistance was provided to 16 families, for some of them it was for the second time, and one family received it for the third time, since no one helps them except our organization. The list of volunteers is growing: private people addressed us with an offer to help vulnerable families. Some of the families were transferred money, others were provided with household items. A stroller for a newborn baby was found, sent it to Rustavi with other accessories for the baby.

Our dear Ukrainians participated in two events organized by the Women Fund "Sukhumi":

June 1, International Children's Day, Ukrainian women and children were invited to our office. For them, a presentation of delicious Georgian dishes, which were prepared by the employees of the Fund was held. The guests were also presented with memorable gifts. The women shared their stories. There were many happy and sad moments.

- Society should have information on how to act in case of violence, how to help the victim. The more people are informed, the more effective the response will be - this is the general opinion of the meeting participants.

Informing is an important segment in the work of the Women Support Centers, on the basis of which the problem is identified and further response is made. The meetings held in the Women Support Centers of Terjola, Kobuleti and Samtredia have already brought results: women, together with the mobilizers of the centers, are working to protect their rights and receive existing services.
