Children and families in Georgia will benefit from child-centered municipal social programmes as a result of a new initiative funded by the EU and implemented by UNICEF.
The 18-month project, ‘Supporting Municipalities in Developing Municipal Social Programmes for Children and Families with Children’, will assist ten selected municipalities in developing social programmes tailored to the needs of the children and families with children.
The project, based on the methodology used by the EU Member States, will develop social needs assessment guidelines and tools, and provide trainings and on-the-job coaching to members of the local task force in pilot municipalities. They will also learn how to monitor the implementation of social programmes.
The project is implemented in partnership with the National Association of Local Self-Government of Georgia.
