A New Academic Year in newly reconstructed schools in Adjara Region (September 17)

On September 17, A/DCM Jeffrey Reneau participated in the inaugural ceremony marking the reconstruction of the public school in Dzentsmani, Adjara Autonomous Republic. US EUCOM’s Humanitarian Assistance Program provided funding for a complete renovation of Dzentmani and partial renovation of Zeda-Kvirike public schools in Adjara. The project was managed by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).  This effort complements USAID’s “WASH in Adjara Project” aimed to improve sanitary and hygienic conditions in schools of Adjara mountainous regions and ultimately reduce the spread of communicable diseases among school-age children.

These US EUCOM-funded primary school renovations enable over one hundred students to start the new academic year in a positive, healthy learning environment. The project is the best example of how collaboration between the U.S. and Georgian governments can lead to lasting positive results – particularly in the field of education.
