PROJECT DESCRIPTION
 
In September 2014 the Austrian and Georgian Samaritans began the project “rugby  for vulnerable children and youth” which allows children to devote their after school free time to playing rugby.

The project aims to engage school aged children of border villages Ditsi, Arbo, Cordy and Tirdznizi in sports, promote a healthy lifestyle and help them overcome the psychological trauma caused by the military conflict. Also, it aims to support the children dealing with family conflicts.

During one year, up to 90 boys and girls will be trained by professional coaches from Tbilisi twice a week. The coaches will be assisted by locals who will receive a coaching license supported by the Georgian Rugby Union. Development of the project will be monitored by psychologists who will work on the issues mentioned.
One of our main tasks is to establish a rugby club in the villages, connect it with other clubs, and organize friendly matches. This is a trial project and we hope that similar projects will be implemented in other regions as well.

The project was funded by the Sports Ministry of Austria and the Georgian Rugby Union. UN Women is a partner of the project. 

Since September 2015 the project is financed by the Ministry of youth affairs of Georgia
