On March 3 Project Harmony (PH International) hosted an award ceremony in Gori to honor the winners Momavlis Taoba’s essay contest “Woman – An Active Citizen.”  Ambassador Norland delivered welcoming remarks and presented the awards to the authors of the winning essays, which highlighted the importance of meaningful civic, economic and political participation by women for Georgia’s democratic development.

Momavlis Taoba, or “future generation,” is a high school-level civic education project funded by USAID and implemented by PH International in partnership with the Center for Training and Consultancy, the National Civics Teachers’ Forum and 11 regional NGO partners.  The project is supported by the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia (MES).

Momavlis Taoba works with 20% of high schools nationwide in Georgia.  It aims to: promote greater civic engagement of young people through civic education courses and extracurricular civics clubs; and enhance civil society and MES’ role in institutionalizing civic education across Georgia with a focus on practical applications.
