Description
The Education Development and Employment Center is an independent organization which was formed on the basis of Kutaisi Community Youth Center, established by World Vision Georgia in 2004 to support deinstitutionalization reform by the Government of Georgia. The aim was to prevent child abandonment by placing them in foster care and alternative care services. The community center administered pilot Small Group Homes, where children who were brought from large institutions lived in a family-like, caring environment. The center supported vulnerable families, assisted with finding sources of income, and reaching economic self-resilience. The Education Development and Employment Center, as an independent organization, was established on January 10, 2008, with the goal of improving social-economic conditions of youth, increasing community engagement, allowing citizens to become rightful members of society, and contributing to improved social-economic conditions in the region. In 2017, the center rebranded itself, and now serves its members and beneficiaries with a new image and a new drive. Today, the Education Development and Employment Center works throughout the country to support civil society development, education, child protection, and economic development. With its head office located in Kutaisi, EDEC runs regional offices in Zugdidi, Gori, Terjola, Samtredia and Saguramo. The organization has accumulated invaluable experience through working in rural and urban areas on protection of rights, provision of education, employment, small and medium business development, support to social entrepreneurship, advocacy and public awareness. With its portfolio encompassing over 50 successfully implemented projects, employing over 50 staff members, EDEC is now a strong institution.
