Partnership between Civics Club and Tbilisi City Hall for Safer Traffic | 1 Dec 2015

Poor pedestrian road facility near Tbilisi Public School #186 had long caused risk for students and other citizens crossing the street near the school. Pedestrian crossing was hard to see as the narkings were wiped clean. Students, parents and school personnel had difficulties when crossing the street to get to the school building.

This problem came to the attention of the “Delta” Civics Club, founded at School #186 in November 2014, in the framework of USAID funded “Future Generation” (MT) project, implemented by PH International and supported by Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia. Since the day of its founding, Civics Club member students carried out different initiatives for their school and community. They advocate for the healthy lifestyle, for the need of environmental protection and human rights education.
