Small-Group Homes

Goal: to provide the children without parental care with opportunity to be brought up in a ‘family-type’ environment and get prepared for independent life.

In the Small-Group Homes, the children are provided with nutritious meal four times a day, seasonal clothes, footwear, and personal hygiene items. Moreover, they get psychological and medical assistance. All children receive the compulsory, or/and vocational education. Some of the children are enrolled in inclusive education system in case of need. A special “Independent Life Program” has been elaborated for equipping the children with social and life skills.

Caritas Georgia manages three small-group homes, two in Tbilisi and one in the village of Martkopi, hosting total 28 children without parental care. The Martkopi SGH is an integrated environment for healthy children and children with different mental and physical disabilities.
