CSI Summarized the Results of Poverty Reduction Program
Samegrelo. On November 15, the Civil Society Institute (CSI) has summarized the 5-year results of the "Poverty Reduction Models in Rural Areas” program in Zugdidi, in the conference hall of the regional administration.

According to the Project Manager Ia Gabunia, the project was implemented in Samegrelo and Adjara with the financial support of international organization "Oxfam”. She also said that the key objective of the project was to improve the living conditions of the population living in extreme poverty in the rural areas. As part of the project, 150 families were provided with all necessary means in form of a production capital to launch their own production.

"Initially 100% of the production capital was funded for the farmers’ groups, and afterwards our participation was reducing by 25% on a yearly basis. After five years the beneficiaries became able to fully fund their own economies”, – Ia Gabunia said.

The documentary depicting the activities carried out as part of the project was shown at the meeting. Representatives of local self-government and NGOs have attended the meeting.
