PROJECT DESCRIPTION
 
In September 2014 the Austrian and Georgian Samaritans started the project “Rugby for vulnerable children and youth”, which allows children to spend their after school free time to play rugby.

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

One of our main tasks was to establish a rugby club in the villages, to connect it with other clubs and organize friendly matches. During one year, up to 90 boys and girls joined the trainings by professional coaches from Tbilisi twice a week. The coaches were assisted by locals, who received a coaching license supported by the Georgian Rugby Union. In the end the development of the project was monitored and evaluated by psychologists, who were focused on the mentioned issues. 

As a matter of fact the Rugby Project was designed to be a trial project, which means that we hope that similar projects will be implemented in other regions as well.

The whole 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
