The center for Strategic Research and Development of Georgia has young ambassadors of social entrepreneurship in 5 regions of Georgia.
On July 20, young ambassadors of social entrepreneurship were revealed in the factory. In the program of young ambassadors of social entrepreneurship, the authors of 8 projects moved to the final stage, who presented to the jury with ideas on how they plan to popularize social entrepreneurship and raise awareness.
The winners will work in Kvemo Kartli, Shida Kartli, Samtskhe-Javakheti, Adjara and Mtskheta-Mtianeti.
Young ambassadors will receive up to €750 in financial support from the CSRDG with support from the EU and Bread for the World. During the next 6 months, the ambassadors will work together with their colleagues in the regions in terms of interest of local youth in social entrepreneurship. After 6 months, the best ambassador will be identified and will be awarded with special prizes.
