Organizational Health and Safety Course for the Tetritskaro Municipality Residents

On February 13, 2020, the participants of the Organizational Health and Safety Course (OHS) were awarded certificates. The course was organized by the Association Rural Development for Future Georgia (RDFG) and it was a part of the Vocational Education and Training (VET) component of the EU-funded project Rural Development for Sustainable Growth of the Tetritskaro Municipality. The training sessions were hosted by the Georgian Security Academy and the Tetritskaro municipality residents participated in it with RDFG’s full financial support.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) component is a part of the EU-funded project Rural Development for Sustainable Growth of the Tetritskaro Municipality. In the framework of the project, RDFG’s team actively works with local stakeholders to support accessibility on professional education and raise awareness of the need and importance of different kinds of professions on the local and regional levels. The specific object of the project is to help the local community to make decisions about their professional choice and assist them in managing their careers.

The EU-funded project “Rural Development for Sustainable Growth in the Tetritskaro Municipality” is implemented by EU partner organisation, RDFG. The project aims to improve the quality of life in the Tetritskaro municipality through the introduction of innovative social-economic models and engagement of local private and public sectors in the decision making. RDFG is partnering with the Agro-Technology Association and the Lithuanian Local Action Groups Network to carry out the action.

The EU is supporting rural development in Georgia through its ENPARD Programme. Implemented since 2013 with a total budget of EUR 179.5 million, the main goal of ENPARD is to reduce rural poverty. The first phase of ENPARD in Georgia focused on developing the potential of agriculture. The second phase focuses on creating economic opportunities for rural population that go beyond agricultural activities. More information on ENPARD is available at: www.enpard.ge
