UPDATES AND PROGRESS
In march, we have started our projects again with a new group of people. Everyday now, they are coming to our Youth House and take part in our educational program. In the morning, the get classes in general topics like history, English and social pedagogy.
In the afternoon, they are learning about handicraft like working with wood, clay and glass; either in our own new factories or in a professional college in Tbilisi.
Our new group is very lovely and motivated and we are looking forward to the next months of the projects!
Hello! I would like to introduce myself…
My name is Lilith Schuster, I am 19 years old and I come from Germany. Since 7months now, I am in Georgia and volunteer for Life Chance.
My stay is part of the “Weltwärts”-Programm, which is organized by the German government. Young people from 18 to 28 years are sent to different countries, where they work in social or environmental engaged organizations, to support their work and to get new experiences and skills.
My sending organization is a small German organization, which is called “act for transformation” and engages for environmental and intercultural topics. Together with four other volunteers, I am the first one, who is sent to Georgia.
In Youth House, I found a wonderful place to meet many people, learn about the structure of an NGO and do some useful work. Now that our new projects have started, I am doing language classes in English and German, joining the workshops and I am doing office work like reports or social media posts. Furthermore, I am taking part at the educational program in college, where I learn about working with glass.
My work is diverse and interesting, that’s why I like it so much! I am having a really interesting time in Georgia and I am glad to have the chance to be here, get new perspectives, meet nice people and learn so much about social work.
I am curious for the next months!
Another important step in our work!
We as Life Chance work with adolescents, who come from orphines homes and who have to start their life as an adult after that. So, our most important goal is, to lead our adolescents to an independent and self-determined life.
One of our girls, Mariam, has now done a big step in this direction and moved out from our youth house.
She has got a work in a label factory and now an own apartment in Tbilisi.
We are proud of her and hope, that all our adolescents will have the succes, Mariam has reached now.
Ein weiterer grosser Efolg in unserer Arbeit!
Das Hauptziel von Life Chance ist es, die Jugendlichen, die zu uns kommen, an ein eigenstaendiges und selbstbestimmtes Leben heranzufuehren.
Eine unserer Jugendlichen, Mariam, hat nun als Erste dieses Jahr einen grossen Schritt in diese Richtung getan. Sie hat eine eigene Wohnung gefunden und ist aus dem Jugendhaus ausgezogen.
Wir sind sehr stolz auf sie und hoffen, dass unsere anderen Jugendlichen ebenso erfolgreich sein werden wie Mariam.
This month, we had some visitors coming from Germany to our youth house. The group of Clowns ohne Grenzen travelled all across Georgia to do their show for the children.
They played in Tbilisi and Batumi, but also in small villages and refugees camps. We, as Life Chance organized their stay in Georgia and also accompanied them on their journey.
For us too, it was a very special experience! We will remember especially their last evening, when we got a private show in our youth house.
Diesen Monat hatten wir in unserem Jugendhaus Besuch von Clowns aus Deutschland. Die Gruppe von Clowns ohne Grenzen reiste einmal durch Georgien, um hier ihre Show fuer unsere Kinder zu spielen.
Wir als Life Chance haben ihren Aufenthalt organisiert und sie auf ihrer Reise begleitet. Auch fuer uns war es eine sehr besondere und ungewoehnlich Erfahrung, an die wir uns noch lange erinnern werden!
Our new clay factory has been opened on 17th of July 2018.
Today we received a wonderful donation to help us move forward and expand our organization. This car will allow us to continue to help children and allow them to experience things they would have not experienced otherwise. We are very thankful for this donation and can’t wait to see what amazing places this car takes us!
