The project´s goal was to extand OPU activities in Georgia started in 2006 and its´ aim was to support Georgian NGOs associated in Cchinvalskij dom Confederation and to extand activities of Czech-Georgian centres in Gori and Tbilisi. Our effort was to enable refugees from Cerovani, Koda and Verchvebi actively participate in public life and local authorities activities. 30 selected activists participated in three 3-days trainings with 6 Czech and 3 Georgian tutors, concerning different areas, e.g. legislation of Georgia, non-governmental organizations, EU asylum and migration legislation, illegal migration, projects preparation and fundraising. We also helped to establish and register 3 new NGOs, which are going to safeguard refugees´ interests and support local authorities activities. Four NGOs employees from Georgia took part in exchange visits to the Czech Republic, where they had an opportunity to get acquainted with Czech NGOs and state authorities working with refugees.

One of our aims was to present OPU acitivities in Georgia (within the framework of transition programme MFA 2006-2010) to Czech and Georgian ministries (MI, MFA), regional and local authorities. Their representatives were invited to participate in following project acitivities – round table, seminar, and also recieved a final narrative report in Czech, English, Russian and Georgian. One of the main project outcomes is study material and handbook for NGO registration process.
