Internally Displaced Persons & Social Cohesion

In Georgia, GNWP and its partner – IDP Women’s Association “Consent” –launched the YWL program in 2021. Young women from across the country – including internally displaced young women and those living in villages along the Administrative Border Line with the breakaway republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia – participated in online training that enhanced their understanding of leadership approaches, peacebuilding methodologies, and relevant legal frameworks. They also identified key priorities for the program – including leadership, civic education, participation in peace negotiations, and mental and psychological well-being.
