Address signboards in Rustavi

Volunteer: ნუკრი რამიშვილი

Location: Kvemo Kartli, Rustavi, მშვიდობის ქუჩა, მელიქიშვილის ჩიხები.

Problem statement

Rustavi does not have address signs on many of its houses today. This has become a problem after new settlements appeared in the city and most of them are private houses. In some cases the addresses was marked to the property late (still they do not have signboards), in some other cases the signboards were lost or damaged and the houses are identified according to their land number or in other ways.

Without the address signboards emergency services cannot often provide the services to those people, or just visitors and tourists who want to locate the houses. This creates discomfo...

Yellow Bus

Volunteer: თიკა შერგელაშვილი

Location: Kvemo Kartli, Rustavi, ახალგაზრდობის პარკი ფალიაშვილის ქუჩაზე

Problem statement

Rustavi Youth Park is not well kept. There is lots of litter there and very little infrastructure. The local community living near the park for this reason feels no responsibility to take care of it. The park has very poor outdroor lighting system and it does not feel safe to be there in late hours. A few of local citizens have addressed the local self governance in Rustavi to improve its infrastructure but their requests have not been met. I want to improve a section of the park and engage the local citizens in doing it. They will feel responsibility over the park. At this park we will...

Green school and sports

Volunteer: liako10@gmail.com

Location: Kvemo Kartli, Rustavi,

Problem statement

Our school does not have enough green space and plants. Its not good to look at and obviously affects air quality in the neighbourhood. If you add natural geographic conditions of Rustavi and jammed high storied houses, you will see how acute the problem is. The school is located near the highway and there is intense air pollution which makes environment even less healthy for children.
We need more green space in the school.
Another issue is careless attitude towards environment and health among people. The society is not interested in the damage their cars produce for air po...

Film production for youth

Volunteer: Giorgi Chaphichadze

Location: Kvemo Kartli, Rustavi, მთელი რუსთავის მასშტაბით

Problem statement

Georgian cinema produced high quality films in the Soviet times. Our film production has been in decline in recent decades but we are showing a slow recovery and Georgian films are having success at international festivals. Georgian films are more based on ethusiasm and passion rather than money as our film production is more cost effective.

I think Georgian film production has a high potential. I know lots of youth in Georgia who could become good film makers or videographers, if they had an opportunity and equipment to do that. I'm one of them: I like to show reality in my ...

Rehabilitation of the district's sports stadium

Volunteer: soso parajanashvili

Location: Kvemo Kartli, Rustavi, In the vicinity of houses #10-11-12 , 14th micro/district

Problem statement

The idea of the project is the minor rehabilitation of the district's sports stadium. Currently the stadium is being used by the youth and adults living in the other district as well as the youth living in the 8 residential blocks of the district. Currently 220 - 250 young girls and boys. Over time the basketball shields and cover have been damaged, which makes playing impossible. Unfortunately, when children have no opportunity to play, they have inclinations towards anti-social behavior. Some damages to the cover have been caused exactly by dropping a cigarette end. Implementation...

Outdoor Cinema

Volunteer: Levan Kurtanidze

Location: Kvemo Kartli, Rustavi, Rustaveli 22-2

Problem statement

We had the idea of implementing the first project in 2013 due to lack of entertainment places in Rustavi, especially due to one of the most important problems for the youth - the dysfunctional cinema of the city. The youth of Rustavi had no opportunity to spend our free time in a pleasant way, in the company of our friends, so we had to go to the capital to see a movie.
like Rustavi, in other cities and villages, especially in the mountainous regions, the youth have no opportunity to see movies on big screens. Besides cinema, they also lack entertainment places. Therefore, it has...

Contact Orchard

Volunteer: Mariam Kavtaradze

Location: Kvemo Kartli, Rustavi, Mayakovski street, #16 public school

Problem statement

As you know, school period is the best time to realize what is your aspiration and what you want to do in life. I and my friends have always wanted lessonს to be joyful, entertaining-educational, because we thought this would help us to better realize what we wanted to do in the future. As soon as we saw the prospect of realizing the dream we decided to give the idea the form of a project. The main problem is the following: The modern education system really gives pupils full theoretical knowledge in natural sciences, but the pupils have no ability to use the theoretical knowledge in...

42 - Co-working space and Social cafe for young people

Volunteer: KETEVANI JINORIDZE

Location: Kvemo Kartli, Rustavi, Old Rustavi

Problem statement

Rustavi is a town near Tbilisi. This location brings various advantages and disadvantages for the local youth. Young people in Rustavi constantly have the dilemma: to stay or not to stay. Due to the fact that Tbilisi offers more opportunities and diverse activities for personal/professional development or leisure time, the town is facing huge brain drain. All of my friends and social circle is currently working or studying in Tbilisi and have no time to contribute to life in Rustavi. As a result, town is passive and "boring" for youth and is not capable of offering the activiti...

Avelum Live Library

Volunteer: Nino Charkviani

Location: Kvemo Kartli, Rustavi, Baratashvili 7

Problem statement

Due to our reality the level of general education among pupils is low, which also reduces the level of being socially active. It is important to inform the youth about the culture of volunteerism and working for the welfare of the society. Unfortunately some young people even fail to know what volunteerism is and if they know it, they don’t know how they can get involved in it.
This problem is partly caused by lack of informal education in schools. There should be more clubs, more unions where pupils would be able to talk about different topics, express their opinions and develop t...

Extracurricular Education in social space

Volunteer: Nikoloz Kavtaradze

Location: Kvemo Kartli, Rustavi, Vakhushti str. #5

Problem statement

The main problem that we aim to solve within the frame of the project is lack of youth space in our city. Older pupils have quite a lot of free time and innovative ideas and in order to implement them only a well-arranged social space with basic equipment is needed. Teenagers spend plenty of time meaninglessly whereas extracurricular education and activities are important for their personal and career development in the future.

Green Wall

Volunteer: sofiko nozadze

Location: Kvemo Kartli, Rustavi, 21 m/d. in the vicinity of school # 22, Kutaisi street.

Problem statement

Global climate change has become an important ecological problem for the world as well as for Georgia. This especially concerns South and South-East parts of Georgia, where in reality the modern process of rise in air temperature is observed - the threat of desertification. This phenomenon was partly caused by the fact that throughout whole Georgia there are no windbreaks which negatively affects the soil, in terms of destroying its fertile layers and also negatively affects agricultural lands as well as the populated areas around the lands, change of micro-climate.

Cinema in Rustavi

Volunteer: tornikekiria@gmail.com

Location: Kvemo Kartli, Rustavi, Kostava street #39

Problem statement

For over 5 years Rustavi hasn't had a cinema and consequently, a place where the youth would be able to watch a movie, relax, have fun. For years lack of a cinema in the city has been the reason of many protest rallies but they didn't have any result. The youth of Rustavi go to the capital to watch movies which is related to extra expenses. And the problem remains a problem.

Problem statement

the problem that our idea is solving is one that any resident of rustavi will tell you the city has. "There is nothing to do" in rustavi, especially if you want to do something active or something sporty. if you live in rustavi and you want to lead an active, healthy sporty life, you're out of luck. because the only places you can go to that offer something in this field, is privately owned, therefore it has a paywall that many youngsters are discouraged by or simply cannot afford to get trough. there are a few places that have very primitive, basic equipment for working ou...
