HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Good governance» in Georgia

The HEKS/EPER Programme in Georgia is part of the South Caucasus Regional Programme. It strives to foster peaceful coexistence and improve living conditions in rural areas through income-generating activities and by empowering civil society. To boost their crop yields and incomes, smallholders broaden their knowledge of organic farming and improve their access to infrastructure, micro-credits and markets. And to strengthen social cohesion, HEKS/EPER supports its partner organizations in building a network which, in collaboration with opinion leaders, media and civil society organizations, provides its members with neutral information about politics, society and the current conflicts in the South Caucasus.

Facts

In South Caucasus, HEKS/EPER helped some 5400 fruit and milk producers increase their income in 2017.

560 young people developed a joint vision of peace through constructive dialogue.

 

A properly functioning State is transparent and accountable in that it ensures legal certainty, peace, human rights and participation and creates economic and social conditions that ensure the population's well-being. HEKS/EPER and its partner organizations strive to ensure that civil society is involved in economic and political processes – more specifically also minorities and other communities on the fringes of society, as inclusive governance fosters stability and sustainability.
