The Entrepreneurial School in Gori has
finished. Within one month, 22 youth representatives from the Shida Kartli
region were able to strengthen their skills for successful entrepreneurial
activities. They were all awarded certificates.
The curriculum covered Business Management
and Planning, Marketing, Fundraising, Financial Management, and legal issues
related to Business Administration. Students also received individual,
needs-based consultations and mentorship to improve their business ideas.
As part of the program, they also visited the
farmer’s house “Agrokartli”, Gori’s canning factory “Kula”,
the poultry factory “Dzeveri” and the milk-producing company “Nebiera.”
There, the students got familiar with differing production processes and used
their chance to ask questions about their issues of interest, in particularly
sales, export, and employment opportunities.
The Entrepreneurial School is part of the EU-funded
project “EU4Youth – Enhancing Youth Education, Employment and Participation in
Conflict-affected Areas in Georgia and Ukraine.” The initiative aims to
widen education, employment, and entrepreneurial opportunities for internally
displaced persons and conflict-affected youth and encourages their significant
participation in the community. In Georgia, it is implemented by the Danish
Refugee Council (DRC) and the Education Development and Employment Center
