EU to finance 15 NGOs aimed at protecting human rights in Georgia
EU has chosen 15 Georgian and European non-governmental organizations to carry out their projects in Georgia. The projects are aimed at strengthening the role of civil society in promoting human rights and democratic reforms, supporting the rule of law and good governance.
The European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR) has allocated €1.34 million for financing. Budgets of individual projects range from €52 thousand and €100 thousand. The projects will focus on protecting the rights of vulnerable groups such as internally-displaced persons, ethnic, religious and other minorities, children, women and people with disabilities.
The EIDHR was established in 1994 as a mechanism to finance various projects supporting and promoting human rights and democracy in countries outside the EU.
