PH International began working with people in Tbilisi and other regions of Georgia in 1988, within 3 years after the organization was founded as Project Harmony, Inc. In early years, a number of student and professional exchanges took place between Georgia and America. PH established a permanent representative field office in Tbilisi in 2000. Since that time we have conducted several wide-reaching programs in PH’s core areas of Community Development, Information Technology, Education Development and Professional Development. The Community Connections Program brought teams of Georgian professionals in different fields to the U.S. on professional development and public diplomacy programs involving American families and U.S. host organizations through three-to-five week cultural and professional programs. PH's Georgian Legal Socialization Project (GLSP), and it’s follow-on Georgia Community Action and Linkages for Legal Socialization (GE CALLS) raise community awareness about juvenile justice issues and build collaboration for positive changes in public safety and crime prevention. PH’s widespread Applied Civic Education and Teacher Training (ACETT) program (2010 – 2014) and the current Momavlis Taoba/Future Generations program are strengthening school based civic education by training teachers and introducing new approaches that result in increased student civic engagement in 50% of Georgia’s schools and their communities. The English Access Microscholarship Program builds English language capacity in disadvantaged communities, and the English Language Through Civic Education (ELCE) and Intensive Course for Teachers of English (ICTE) programs also build teacher skills in Georgia using American TESOL specialists to improve English language and American/western culture training. Our latest program in Georgia, Georgian Police as Leaders in Athletics for Youth (Georgian PLAY Basketball) is part of the US Department of State's Sports United program.
Major funding for our work in Georgia has come from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the U.S. Information Agency (USIA), the U.S. Embassy in Tbilisi, the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL), as well as participants in exchange programs.
