Expert study and participatory needs assessment on social services available and vulnerable groups failing to reach state social assistance
- Establishment and Capacity-building of advisory committees on strategic planning.
With PIN’s support, the target CSO will play a key role in mapping and mobilizing potential members, introducing the SIP approach to them and explaining benefits and expected outcomes of the AC.
The AC will be facilitated in the first two years by a representative of the target CSO, in charge of moderating the committee, in particular organising and facilitating meetings, preparing and publishing minutes.
- Result 1: CSOs engagement in policy dialogue on social inclusion has increased through enhanced expertise, capacity, consolidated evidence and networking.
Beneficiaries of the project:
People in Need (PIN) (ადამიანი გაჭირვებაში)
Imereti, Samegrelo and Shida Kartli regions (municipalities of Tkibuli, Khoni, Zugdidi and Gori)
What people say"Social service provision faces many challenges in georgia, especially at the local level. For the most part, municipal social programs are monetized and cash payouts are actively employed. Local municipalities are deprived of opportunities to provide social services to the local population. We believe that advisory committees established in the municipalities will be the starting point of the systemic changes at the local level and cooperation between government and civil society will contribute to the improved situation of the vulnerable groups."
