One of the greatest sources of vulnerability in Georgia is the high risk of natural and manmade disasters that also threaten the overall development of the country. Due to its geographic location and complex natural setting, Georgia is a highly disaster-prone country. The overall objective of RDFG’s Disaster Risk Reduction work is to contribute to the increased resilience and reduced vulnerability of children and communities in areas prone to natural hazards. In addition to general DRR education and training, RDFG organizes and supports DRR Youth Clubs that participate in national disaster preparedness activities in their schools and communities.

The Georgian people have demonstrated their strength and resilience through Soviet occupation, and military conflicts. Through it all, Georgians came together to support each other but we need to take steps to avoid internal conflicts. The overall objective of RDFG’s Peace Building projects is to work with conflict-affected people to promote peace, friendship and understanding to avoid social, national and religious conflicts. RDFG partners with national and international organizations to assist Internally Displaced People (IDPs) as they care for their families, build economic opportunity, and create strong integrated communities.
